Forward 50: You might actually know one of them
The Jewish Daily Forward released its annual list of the 50 most influential American Jews.
Each year, I play the "how many of these people do I recognize" game. I think I'd heard of 13 last year. Now, let's see.
I think that's 19 this year.
Note: I'm only writing down the names of people I recognize.
At this point, you probably want me to stop listing people whose names I've recognized. What else am I going to do, my homework? No.
Jimmy Delshad? Check.
Arnold Eisen? Check.
Robert Aronson? Check. You might actually know Robert Aronson if you're from the Detroit area.
Amazingly, I only had to include three first names with the last names. The other 16 last names are pretty recognizable.
