The Top 100 People Positively Influencing Jewish Life, 2019


Paul Gigot

Editorial page editor and vice president, The Wall Street Journal

Paul Gigot, editorial page editor and vice president of the Wall Street Journal, arguably oversees one of the most pro-Israel editorial pages among US mainstream news publications. A Pulitzer Prize winner, Gigot also moderates the television series Journal Editorial Report, which is broadcast on Fox News. A March 2019 editorial on the Golan Heights, for instance, took a measured approach to the US recognition, by way of a tweet from President Donald Trump, of Israeli sovereignty over the region. “This time his tweet was based on more than personal impulse and makes sense for American and Israeli interests,” it argued.
