Forward 50 Honoree Makes Own List: Philosemitic 50

Atlantic national correspondent Jeffrey Goldberg — whom this year’s Forward 50 dubbed “the elite media’s leading Judaic scribe” (much to fellow Atlantic blogger Andrew Sullivan’s delight) — has responded to his inclusion on our list of estimable individuals by starting a list of his own.

The folks on Goldberg’s list may prove to be an even more estimable bunch because, unlike the Forward 50, his list isn’t limited to the living — and it’s not limited to Jews. Indeed, there likely won’t be any Jews on his list.

Goldberg writes:

To get things started, Goldberg has suggested the first five names. Not one of them, however, is Jon Voight, which leads me to question Goldberg’s methodology.
