Well, OK. But anyone who reads that article should at least recognize that Newsweek is stretching the boundaries of what constitutes "influential." I would say that most of the rabbis on that list haven't exactly influenced America as a country. For that matter, most of them haven't even influenced all of Judaism.

On the other hand, we're talking about Newsweek--whose lists aren't that far above the ones Forbes loves to create--so I guess I shouldn't be too surprised.
