Forward 50

Nine more women for the Forward 50

As it does every year, the Forward recently published its “Forward 50” – and just like every year, the list is short on women.

Another year, another Forward 50 list of Jewish leaders who have made the biggest impact (good or bad) in American Jewish life.

The Forward's 50

Today the Forward posted their list of the 50 Jews who have had the most dramatic impact on the Jewish community over the past year.  These types of lists are somewhat gimmicky, because they are essentially a "supreme New Media trick of writing feature stories that are news events themselves," as Matthue Roth writes at My Jewish Learning.
