The Top 100 People Positively Influencing Jewish Life, 2020


Blake Flayton


The author of a much-quoted New York Times op-ed written during his sophomore year at George Washington University, Blake Flayton articulated some basic truths about life at American universities for students who support Israel. Flayton, a liberal activist, faced antisemitism in leftist spaces on his campus and was accused of genocide apologism. "This is the reality of being a politically active Jew on many American college campuses," Flayton wrote. "If you call yourself a Zionist because your family fled to Israel from a Middle Eastern country as a means of survival, you are complicit in ethnic cleansing." (Photo: courtesy)
