Hier.jpgTwo years ago, Time magazine published this list of America’s top evangelicals. Newsweek, in its April 2 issue, online now, has decided to rank the nation’s top 50 rabbis.

Not surprisingly, Angelenos and New Yorkers dominate the list. Top honors go to Marvin Hier (pictured), dean and founder of the Simon Wiesenthal Center, the Museum of Tolerance and Moriah Films. Harold Schulweis of Valley Beth Shalom in Encino comes in at 13, described as “the leading Conservative rabbi of his generation.”

What’s the chance that U.S. News & World Report, a staple in the rankings community and third-fiddle among newsweeklies, publishes a list next year of top American imams?
