The Top 100 People Positively Influencing Jewish Life, 2019


Günther Jikeli

Professor, Indiana University in Bloomington

Günther Jikeli, born and educated in Germany and now a professor at Indiana University in Bloomington, conducts what may be some of the most crucial research of the post-World War II era on the persistence of antisemitism. Through a rapidly growing database of one-on-one interviews, as well as thousands of social media posts collected by his research team, Jikeli assembles his raw material directly from antisemites. He is then able to study the formation, evolution, and influence of these attitudes -- a mission of particular import today, as the world experiences an uptick in animus toward Jews. He was recently named the inaugural Ena B. Rosenfeld Professor at the university’s Institute for the Study of Contemporary Antisemitism and has written extensively on European Muslim antisemitism.
