Rabbi Rebecca W. Sirbu

Rabbis Without Borders | New York, New York | 40 years old
Multidenominational | Jewish Theological Seminary

“Rabbi Sirbu directs the Rabbis Without Borders program, coordinates all of the conferences and facilitates all of the learning experiences and communication without which these RWB rabbis could not function. Because her job often requires her to function behind the scenes and to shine the spotlight on her colleagues, one might easily overlook or dismiss her own talents: She is a deeply spiritual, pastoral and incredibly organized person who inspires many in the course of her day-to-day work. She leads quietly, but powerfully, by example.”

—PAMELA JAY GOTTFRIED (also nominated by two others)
