The Top 100 People Positively Influencing Jewish Life, 2020


Joe Biden


Joe Biden will take office in January 2021 following the most bitterly fought election in living memory. The former Senator and Vice President in the Obama administration has made it clear that his main priority is to bring the coronavirus pandemic to heel but that grave challenge is not the only one he faces. When it comes to his relations with the US Jewish community, Biden is known as a stalwart friend of the State of Israel – a country he first visited in 1972, on the eve of the Yom Kippur war. Biden’s election platform included a commitment to oppose “any effort to unfairly single out and delegitimize Israel, including at the United Nations, or through the Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions Movement.” He has also pledged to confront rising antisemitism in America with an approach “that takes seriously both the violence that accompanies it and the hateful and dangerous lies that underlie it.” (Photo: Wikimedia / Creative Commons License)
