The Jewish Daily Forward has posted on its website the results of their project to identify America’s most inspiring rabbis. The Forward had “hoped to engage readers and hear stories about rabbis in unlikely places as we embark on a yearlong series examining the embattled American rabbinate.”
Pittsburgh’s Rabbi Jonathan Perlman of New Light Congregation and Forbes Hospice was named one of the “36 Rabbis Shaping 21st-Century Judaism.”
According to Editor-In-Chief Jane Eisner, “These rabbis offer that kind of leadership. Whether the broader rabbinate can do so may hold the key to the future of the American Jewish community.”
