The Top 100 People Positively Influencing Jewish Life, 2017


Meir Soloveichik

Senior rabbi, Congregation Shearith Israel

Scion of a rabbinic dynasty, Meir Soloveichik was thrust into the public eye when he gave the opening invocation at the Republican National Convention in 2012.

Called the “rabbi-in-chief of the Republican party,” Soloveichik is the great nephew of the revered Rabbi Joseph Soloveitchik, one of the most influential thinkers of the modern Orthodox movement.

Since 2013, Soloveichik has been the rabbi of Congregation Shearith Israel in New York City, a Sephardic institution that is the oldest synagogue in the US.

He pursues his conservative thinking through prolific writing for conservative journals like “First Things” and “Commentary,” while participating in activist events like the March for Life. (Photo credit: Congregation Shearith Israel.)
