The Top 100 People Positively Influencing Jewish Life, 2019


Yehuda Krinsky

Chairman, Chabad’s Merkos L’Inyonei Chinuch

The chairman of the educational arm Chabad movement, Rabbi Yehuda Krinsky began his career as an emissary of the legendary Lubavitcher Rebbe, Menachem Mendel Schneerson. “Today, in my estimation, Chabad-Lubavitch is the largest Jewish organization in the world,” Krinsky said in a 2019 interview. “You have over 3,500 Batei Chabad [Chabad Houses] all over the world, and along with spreading Torah and mitzvot, our people save people in natural disasters. ... They save non-Jews, too.” Among the world leaders with whom Krinsky enjoys a close relationship is Russian President Vladimir Putin. “He spoke about Chabad like a shaliach (emissary),” Krinsky said of one of his meetings with the Russian leader.
