The Top 100 People Positively Influencing Jewish Life, 2021


Cynthia Ozick


The celebrated American Jewish novelist, writer and essayist Cynthia Ozick delighted readers once again in 2021 with the publication of her latest novel, Antiquities, a parable in the style of Kafka that delves into antisemitism in American life. “Some readers might forget that Ozick, who just turned 93, has a darting, impudent wit,” wrote the New York Times in a glowing review. “Antiquities is a reminder.” The Bronx-born Ozick is a recipient of a Lannan Literary Award for fiction and a National Book Critics Circle winner for essays. She is the author of Trust, The Messiah of Stockholm, The Shawl, and The Puttermesser Papers, and many other titles. (Photo: The Jacob Rader Marcus Center of the American Jewish Archives)
