The Top 100 People Positively Influencing Jewish Life, 2021


Marcus Solomon

Australian Supreme Court Justice

Marcus Solomon made history in August when he became the first Orthodox Jewish Rabbi to be appointed to a supreme court in Australia. The newest justice of the Supreme Court of Western Australia, Rabbi Solomon told an Australian news outlet that his appointment was “a tremendous honor and responsibility, and rather overwhelming when one pauses to contemplate the heaviness of that duty.” An experienced commercial litigator and arbitrator, Rabbi Solomon was admitted to practice in 1991. He reflected that his appointment demonstrated that Australian Jews "are blessed with a country that is not only tolerant but that embraces and seeks to continue to embrace and improve its embracing of people from different backgrounds and different cultures.” (Photo: Carmel School)
