Help us shape the JC Power 100 list
THIS WEEK, the JC launches an extensive search for the 100 people who wield the greatest influence on the British Jewish community today. With the help of JC readers and an expert panel of advisers, we are compiling a detailed guide to the people who currently have the most impact on British Jewry, whether through their religious or communal roles, cultural and social leadership, financial backing, or in shaping perceptions of the community in the outside world. The results — the JC Power 100 — will be published in a special edition of the newspaper late next month.
This is where you can help. Today we are asking JC readers for their suggestions of names to include in the list. Tell us who you think are the people who most shape the community today, and your suggestions will be put to our expert panel for consideration in compiling the final list. This panel includes representatives from across the community, including religious, cultural, social and charitable figures — and you the reader will play a central role in this project.
Please let us know who you think should be in the list, and why, in not more than 100 words.
Remember, we are looking specifically for the people who most influence the Jewish community itself, and not simply people who are successful or influential in the wider world. Please email your suggestions before January 31 to JCPower100@thejc.com, or write to: The JC Power 100, Jewish Chronicle, 25 Furnival Street, London EC4A 1JT.
