The Top 100 People Positively Influencing Jewish Life, 2020


Bari Weiss


Having established herself as one of America’s leading Jewish intellectuals of recent years, editor and writer Bari Weiss caused a storm when she resigned from her post with the New York Times in August, citing “bullying” at the hands of her colleagues as well as the “illiberal environment” prevailing at the paper. In her much-quoted resignation letter to the publisher of the New York Times, Weiss wrote frankly, “I do not understand how you have allowed this kind of behavior to go on inside your company in full view of the paper’s entire staff and the public. And I certainly can’t square how you and other Times leaders have stood by while simultaneously praising me in private for my courage. Showing up for work as a centrist at an American newspaper should not require bravery.” (Photo: Screenshot / Creative Commons License)
