The Top 100 People Positively Influencing Jewish Life, 2019


Adam Neumann

Co-founder and CEO, WeWork

Adam Neumann, co-founder and CEO of the workspace company WeWork, in recent months observed Shabbat for the first time and concluded that the experience had changed his life for the better. He now keeps Shabbat with his wife and five children. Neumann also urges others to “disconnect from their technology” to allow a connection with family and friends, and serves as an example for aspiring entrepreneurs that Judaism is compatible with the modern business world. Born in Tel Aviv, Neumann served for five years as an officer in the Israeli Navy and has said that in creating WeWork, he sought to replicate the feeling of togetherness and belonging he felt in Israel.
