7. Rabbi Abraham Schwartz
"Rabbi Abraham Nachman Schwartz was considered the 'Chief Rabbi of Baltimore' during his tenure at Shomrei Mishmeres, the Lloyd Street Synagogue, from 1908 to his death in 1937. A charismatic leader, he was respected for his Talmudic scholarship and loved for his kind, congenial nature. He was also a pragmatic organizational genius who built several communal institutions." -- Jewish Museum of Maryland
