The Minyan: 10 most interesting local Jews of the year


Last year we introduced a new annual feature, the Minyan. We put out the call over Twitter, Facebook, email and print, asking you, our readers, to nominate the year’s most interesting local Jews. We didn’t define “interesting” or “Jew” or even “local” and we didn’t put any restrictions on the nominations. We just asked.

And you answered.

Here’s our 10.

They are students and teachers; rabbis and dentists; secular and Orthodox.

This year we asked our “minyanaires” to answer the following question:

What does it mean to you to be a Jewish leader?

Their answers, excerpted on these pages, illustrate why they were named among the “most interesting” and truly showcase the diversity of our community.

Mazel tov to this year’s Minyan.

Never miss a story.
