Joining New York Knicks forward Carmelo Anthony, Vincent Piazza of Boardwalk Empire, and 47 other New Yorkers, Rabbi Dovi Scheiner and his wife Esty have been named one of 2012’s most stylish New Yorkers by Stylecaster.

The two native New Yorkers opened the Soho Synagogue in one of New York’s trendiest districts, back in 2005, hoping to capitalize on the young Jewish population in the area.

Esty Scheiner told Stylecaster, “when I dress I am marrying my personal style with modesty- that is always a fun challenge.”

The list, which features writers, art dealers, disc jockeys, hotel owners, and designers, was released by Stylecaster on Wednesday.

Rabbi Dovi Scheiner said one of his favorite fashion items is his yarmulka, the Jewish headpiece.

“I love my Yarmulka. At the palace of Versailles a woman approached Esty and me and applauded my courage for wearing my Yarmulka proud despite an anti-Semetic climate in France. I would never have it any other way,” he told Stylecaster.

    It must have been so hard to find a Chabad couple who thought they were hot stuff.

    How enlightening! I’m sure the Rebbe would so much enjoy reading the new Algemeiner — Einstein’s love letters, Someone’s new Jewish crush, how to be on the list of the most stylish, grammy winners, and more! We can just learn so much from all of this! I guess the Algemeiner has switched to a totally different audience… Sorry — I had expected more…

      That has everything to do with the “new” editors trying to be “more goyish than the goyim”
