The Top 100 People Positively Influencing Jewish Life, 2020


Isaac de Castro

Activist and journalist

Cornell University student Isaac de Castro came up with a novel idea during 2020, as Jewish students on university campuses around the US faced an upsurge of antisemitic harassment – including swastikas scrawled in dorm rooms and white supremacist propaganda distributed in public areas. Together with fellow students, de Castro created a new Instagram account – Jewish on Campus – which collects the anonymous anecdotes of Jewish students across the country who have experienced antisemitism in college. The goal is to "provide a safe space for Jews of all backgrounds to speak up against antisemitism on college campuses," conveying the breadth of anti-Jewish sentiment on campuses across the country and showing that colleges and universities have not done enough to address it.
