The Top 100 People Positively Influencing Jewish Life, 2022


Bari Weiss

Writer and Podcaster

The editor of “Common Sense” and the host of the “Honestly” podcast, Bari Weiss is practically a household name, admired in the US and around the world for her interventions on rising antisemitism and the growing polarization of our political culture more broadly. From 2017 until 2020, she was a staff writer and editor for the Opinion section of The New York Times, which she joined after a stint at the Wall Street Journal as an opinion editor. She has also served as a senior editor at Tablet, an online magazine of Jewish news, politics, and culture, where she edited political and news coverage. She regularly appears on shows like The View, Morning Joe and Real Time with Bill Maher. Her first book, "How to Fight Antisemitism," was a Natan Notable Book and the winner of a 2019 National Jewish Book Award. Weiss is also a founding trustee of the University of Austin, a new private liberal arts institution “committed to freedom of inquiry.” (Photo:
