The Top 100 People Positively Influencing Jewish Life, 2021


Benjamin Netanyahu

Israeli political leader

A fixture of The Algemeiner’s J-100 list, Benjamin Netanyahu appears in 2021 for the first time in his new guise as the leader of Israel’s opposition. Despite his defeat in this year’s election, Netanyahu is nonetheless Israel’s longest-serving Prime Minister, having held the post for a total of fifteen years. The first Israeli premier to be born in Israel after statehood was established, Netanyahu enabled a period of growth and prosperity, ensured regional military dominance, and fostered an international coalition against Iran, among other achievements. The historic peace agreements reached in 2020 between Israel and various Arab countries further cemented this process. (Photo: Abir Sultan / Pool via Reuters)
