Windy City sweep

Amid all the discussion about who the top rabbis are, there’s no question what the top city is in the organized Jewish world: CHICAGO.
The Central Conference of American Rabbis, the rabbinic organization of the North American Reform movement, recently installed a new board, and the City of Big Shoulders dominates all the top positions. Rabbi Peter Knobel of Beth Emet the Free Synagogue in Evanston is the new president, and Rabbi Ellen Weinberg Dreyfus of B’nai Yehuda Beth Sholom in Homewood is the new vice president, and will be the next president in 2009 barring any unforeseen circumstances. Thus, the North Side and South Side are both represented.
