The Top 100 People Positively Influencing Jewish Life, 2018


Gilles-William Goldnadel

Founder and chairman, Lawyers Without Borders

Noted French-Israeli lawyer and author Gilles-William Goldnadel is currently representing two of the most high-profile victims of the violent antisemitism that has plagued France for over a decade. Both the families of Sarah Halimi – the 65 year-old pensioner tortured and murdered in April 2017 by an intruder who showered her with antisemitic abuse – and Mireille Knoll – the 85 year-old Holocaust survivor stabbed to death in March 2018 by intruders targeting her as a "wealthy Jew" – are being represented by Goldnadel. Proudly identifying as a "combat Jew," Goldnadel is also the founder of Lawyers Without Borders, which fights discrimination and advocates for human rights, and the head of the Association France-Israel.
