The Top 100 People Positively Influencing Jewish Life, 2018


Lior Raz

Screenwriter and actor

Israeli screenwriter and actor Lior Raz has almost become a household name in the US with this portrait of Doron Kavillio in the political thriller television series Fauda. 2018 has seen Raz return to directing, with the release of his eagerly-awaited movie Operation Finale, starring Ben Kingsley as the fugitive Nazi Adolf Eichmann, who was captured by the Mossad in Argentina in 1960. Interviewed about the film, Raz – who also plays a starring role as then Mossad chief Isser Harel – spoke candidly about the challenges of depicting Eichmann, one of the principal architects of the Holocaust. “We’re not dealing with a villain like a superhero movie,” Raz explained. “The bad guy is just a bad guy, a flat-out bad guy. You don’t care about him. But in real life, very kind people can do awful things.” (Photo: Wikimedia Commons.)
