familiar with some of the names that were submitted

Mrs. Raizy Ziegler heads the organization Zichron Shloime which helps families that are confronted with cancer. Rabbi Eli Sussheim runs the the organization Efrat, which prevents abortions in Israel. These individuals contribute greatly to our society.

Congratulations on a profound descision. This really is the best answer possible to a question that stirs our human desires to exalt someone as the "best" when in the grand scheme of life being the best over everyone else is not the point. The question of who is the best is so common it is hard to see it is skewed until you made this decision. Fantastic! And many pithy comments below are wonderful too!

Greatest Jew

The greatest Jew of all time is Homer Simpson. While he may not be Jewish, he should be. He is tolerant accepting of others, recognizes his own faults, devoted husband/father with fralities,and accepts the rulership of Hashem.

why its impossible to choose

In every jewish community in every country in the world there are rabbonim and their wives who do so much for their communities. I am writing from Brazil, and we have a group of Rabbis who help us 24/7, who provide lists of hundreds of approved products so that every jew in any community in Brazil can get kosher food. They have established Yeshivos, and kollels, and shuls (synagogues) and the kiruv they do here is amazing. But no one else in the world knows who they are, and in every country, in every city, these rabbis, their wives and families deserve a tremendous amount of thanks.
