Am Shalom | Glencoe, Illinois | 38 years old

Through her blogs, Rabbi Phyllis Sommer has created virtual communities of Jews all over the world. Her blog, Superman Sam, told of her son’s battle with leukemia [before his death in 2013] and still raises awareness of, and funding for, pediatric cancer research. She is a brilliant, beautiful writer who can make you laugh and cry in the same post.
