Rabbi Shira Stutman

“The congregation Rabbi Shira built at Sixth & I is large, thriving, innovative and almost entirely filled with Jews in their 20s and 30s. She’s the EXACT right rabbi at the exact right time, making a home for young Jews that is both intellectually and theologically challenging while also being contemporary and popular. Also, she is the master at the “conversion conversation,” bringing in dozens of otherwise interfaith couples into Jewish homes — including my own.”

—ADAM GERBER (also nominated by one other)
