Glossary of Jewish Leaders

Jewish leaders tended to be warriors and prophets in ancient Israel. Then, when the Jewish People were in exile and without a homeland, scholars, teachers, and rabbis became leaders. In the twentieth century, the Jewish People survived Hitler's plans of annihilation and gained their own nation. Soldiers, political leaders, rabbis, academics, and philanthropists are today's Jewish leaders.
