Your top 50 most influential rabbis

Newsweek has released its 4th annual list of the most influential rabbis in America.

Is it a ridiculous concept? Of course.

Even Newsweek says: “Is the list subjective? Yes. Is it mischievous in its conception? Definitely.”

But it’s fun to peruse.

The list is put together by two guys in the entertainment biz: Sony Pictures chairman and CEO Michael Lynton and Gary Ginsberg, an executive vice president of Time Warner Inc.

Your top 3:

1. Yehuda Krinsky, head of the Chabad-Lubavitch.

2. Eric Yoffie, president of the Union of Reform Judaism (who plans to retire in 2012). That’s him.

3. Marvin Heir, founder of the Simon Wiesenthal Center in Los Angeles.

So there you go.
