I just heard that I'm one of the 50 Infuential Rabbis named by Newsweek Magazine.

Although I can think of many more influential rabbis who should be on this list, it is great for Birthright Israel NEXT to get this kind of exposure. And I am happy to be standing next to Rabbi Art Green, #27. Fourteen years ago, he blessed me and my beloved under the chupah - so it is fitting that we are joined at the hip. Mazel Tov to all the new names to make the list.
