Israel may be known for its high-tech prowess, but the Jewish influence in business, economics and technology extends well beyond its borders.

Whether leading the US Federal Reserve's extraordinary monetary policy, creating the technology that will enable driverless cars to hit the road in the coming years, or finding ways to secure the Internet in the age of cybercrime and online warfare, Jews are making their mark in a big way.

We're asking you, our readers, to help us select the most influential players in these fields. The Jerusalem Post's 50 most influential Jews list will be published in our special Rosh Hashana supplement in October.

1. Janet Yellen, US Federal Reserve Chairwoman

2. Stanley Fischer, US Federal Reserve Vice Chairman

3. Karnit Flug, Bank of Israel Governor

4. Moshe Kahlon, Finance Minister

5. Mark Zuckerberg, Facebook CEO

6. Sheryl Sandburg, Facebook COO
