The Top 100 People Positively Influencing Jewish Life, 2021


Elaine Luria

US Congresswoman

Democratic Congresswoman Elaine Luria of Virginia has been a tireless advocate for the US-Israel bilateral relationship since being elected to the House of Representatives in 2019. A veteran of the US Navy, Luria succeeded in deepening connections between the US and Israel despite the challenges of a global pandemic – in this case, for the treatment of Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) among servicemen and women. In a time for our country that seems very challenging, we can come together and help our service members and strengthen the US-Israel relationship,” Luria stated in September. “I worked to ensure that the US-Israel PTSD Collaborative Research Act was included in this year’s defense budget.” Luria explained: "We want to help veterans and provide resources to veterans, and many times we find these tragic veteran suicides that they have not been connected to Veterans’ Affairs or the resources that were available."
