Rabbi David Wolpe, who heads the largest Conservative synagogue west of the Mississippi, made his debut atop Newsweek’s list of the 50 most influential American rabbis.
JERUSALEM — Israeli opposition leader Tzipi Livni and several American Jews, including former U.S. Rep. Gabrielle Giffords, were included in Newsweek’s 150 “Women Who Shake the World.”
Livni was the only Israeli on the list.
The feature called Livni “one of the most powerful women in the country,” who is “known for her honesty and integrity.”
OK, that headline was a joke.
But less than 10 months after its last “50 Most Influential Rabbis” list, Newsweek, newly merged with The Daily Beast, is back to rabbi-ranking.
