Setiap tahun, Michael Lynton (CEO Sony Picture Entertainment) , Gary Ginsberg (News Corp), dan Jay Sanderson (CEO JTN Production), membuat senarai daftar 50 Rabbi paling berpengaruh di Amerika Syarikat. Pada tahun 2008, mereka mendapat nama-nama yang cukup mengagumkan, antara lain termasuk Rabi Sharon Kleinbaum dalam senarai ke 17, walhal Rabi Sharon terkenal sebagai Rabi Senior Pemimpin Sinagoga Terbesar di Dunia khusus untuk kaum Yahudi homoseksual, biseksual, dan heteroseksual.

Berada di puncak, senarai nombor satu adalah Rabi Marvin Hier, pengasas Yayasan Zionis Simon Wiesenthal Center (LA), di mana pada bulan Mei 2008, yayasan ini telah menganugerahkan The Jewish Varlor Medal (Medal Pelindung Yahudi Dunia), kepada Abdurrahman Wahid (Gus Dur), seorang Ghoyim dari Indoensia yang memang dikenal sebagai pelayan kaum Zionis.
