The Top 100 People Positively Influencing Jewish Life, 2020


Yehuda Sarna


Yehuda Sarna was appointed the chief rabbi of the United Arab Emirates in August 2020 by the Jewish Community of the Emirates, one of two Orthodox congregations in the country, as the Gulf Arab nation embarked on its historic peace deal with Israel. “With the Abraham Accords, we are not commemorating the cessation of hostilities; we are celebrating a family reunion, a bond of trust, and a shared mission to the world,” Sarna declared shortly after his appointment. A graduate of Yeshiva University, Sarna was formally ordained as a rabbi in 2004. (Photo: Embassy of the UAE / Screenshot)
