The Jerusalem Post's list of the 50 most influential Jews in the world annually provokes discussion and debate among our readers and the entire Jewish community.

Every person seemingly has their own opinion about who should be on the list and what place they should occupy among the world's most influential Jewish personalities in the last year.

In keeping with that spirit, The Jerusalem Post is turning to its readers for help in compiling the list for the first time ever.

We ask that you choose the candidates you would most like to see on the list and write them in the reader comments section of this article below. The top names chosen by our readers will help compile a master list from which the 50 most influential Jews will be chosen.

Our readers will also have a hand in choosing the final list together with our selection committee. The Jerusalem Post's 50 most influential Jews list will be published in our special Rosh Hashana supplement in October.

Write your selections for the 50 most influential Jews in the comments section below:
