    I wouldn’t put any Newsweek employee among America’s Top 50 Journalists.

    Fear not, Rabbi Feldman. Newsweek became obsolete a decade ago, while great rabbis such as yourself continue to educate and inspire.

  3. Shimon says:

    Point well taken. However, one should be careful about disparaging those on this list. Despite their probably not wanting to be on the list, there are a number of legitimate shul Rabbanim on this list as well as Rav Hershel Schecheter and Rav Shmuel Kamenetsky.

  4. Steve Brizel says:

    Given the fact that the author is a member at a prominent R congregation in Manhattan, one can at least acknowledge the fact that she included R Shemuel Kamenetsky and RHS on the list in question.

    had the top 50 included 50 haredi [ and only haredi] rabbis, would there be any need for any commentary on how even the she’eino yodeah lishol knows We are right?….while we may not like the facts of the real world , the proportionality of the clergy listed by sectors in judaism was probably not all that far from the mark… while the haredi community may not like it , and must halachically besmirch all non Torah True clergy, the impact of many on the list is undeniable to those whose head is not in the sand….

    Who is the Rabbi in the remote town with a small synagogue? I want to move there. Thanks. Gut Shabbos Kosdesh.

    to say “one or two worthy names’ is a tad overdone. i wonder if a thought provoking Ph.D. (i read it) from the univerity of chicago, and a wonderful job at a prominent congregation, as well as more than 2 rabbis with solid orthodox credentials, are not deserving. despite a clear bias (to the left/fashionable modernity), some traditional stalwarts stood out. their choice is, IMHO, a real honor.

    Newsweek magazine conducts a poll or survey and we, Jewish Readers are confused, perplexed and feel misjudged. Is this for real? Have you noted the Anti-Israel rhetoric, the slugs at Jewish CEOs, and their over-all POV. WHO REALLY CARES, NOTICES OR SHOWS CONCERN?

    I am more bewildered with the yearly deletion/void/ignoring of “Hey Iyar -Yom Haatzmaut” in our Jewish, Torah media and newspapers. For the first time ever, the Flatbush Jewish Journal FJJ had an OP-ed page on Yom Haatzmaut which was refreshing to skim through. Of course, the Rabbi (an unknown to most)with the favorable or positive POV towards the day was given little space and/or strength of analysis. Have we lost the ability to communicate, discuss and bring forth ideas on ISSUES? A sorry state for the youth and young adults of today which is headlined as “OUR WAY OR THE HIGHWAY”.
