NEWSWEEK MAG­A­ZINE’S sec­ond an­nual list of the 50 most in­flu­en­tial rab­bis in Amer­ica has again placed Marvin Hier, founder of the Si­mon Wiesen­thal Cen­tre, in the num­ber-one spot.

The list was com­piled by three friends — Michael Lyn­ton, chair­man & CEO, Sony Pic­tures En­ter­tain­ment; Gary Gins­berg, ex­ec­u­tive VP, global mar­ket­ing and cor­po­rate af­fairs, News Corp; and Jay Sanderson, CEO and ex­ec­u­tive pro­ducer, JTN/JTN Pro­duc­tions.

They ranked the coun­try’s rab­bis in terms of me­dia profile, lead­er­ship and po­lit­i­cal in­flu­ence. This year’s list also in­cludes au­thor and lec­turer Shmuley Boteach at num­ber nine, and Ye­huda Berg of the Kab­balah Cen­tre at 11. Re­form rabbi and Tikkun ed­i­tor Michael Lerner is at 50.
