The Top 100 People Positively Influencing Jewish Life, 2020


Josh Gad


2020 was a busy year for Jewish actor and producer Josh Gad. As the coronavirus pandemic closed the world down, Gad launched an online movie club on YouTube, entertaining audiences with classic films and encouraging donations to charities like Dig Deep, Project Hope and No Kid Hungry. It was also a prolific year for Gad’s own output, with starring roles in the HBO comedy series “Avenue 5” and the Apple TV musical comedy “Central Park.” In July, responding to a spike in antisemitism in the US, Gad protested that bigotry against Jews was coming “from people in a position who should know better and who have the ability to really send messages to a large swath of people who I would imagine can benefit from such greater messaging than intolerance, at a time when there is so much intolerance.” (Photo: Wikimedia / Creative Commons License)
