The Forward Announces 2010 Forward 50

The Forward, the only national weekly Jewish newspaper covering current, national and international news, today released its annual list of 50 men and women who have made a significant impact on the Jewish story in the past year: The Forward 50. This year’s list covers a wide variety of people in the world of activism/community, culture, politics, religion, science, and the economy.

Leading the Jewish Way

Assembling the Forward 50 is like taking a stroll through recent history. Certain landmarks become immediately visible, while others take longer to discern. The Jewish story in the last year was characterized by the traditional worries — about the Jewish future in America, about Israel’s future in the Middle East — punctuated by a new set of crises and concerns. The toxic national political environment gave rise to more polarizing Jewish voices on the left and the right, who argued over candidates, causes and Islamic centers; over who is responsible for Israel’s faltering world image and for the growing alienation among young American Jews.”  — Jane Eisner

They call me "NewsHound III," because I'm a smart Cookie, sniffing out stories all over the Boulder area. I love Jewish holidays because the food is GREAT, especially the brisket. Well all the food. I was adopted from the Humane Society of Boulder Valley and have many friends there also looking for homes.
