The Top 100 People Positively Influencing Jewish Life, 2021


Evan Bernstein


The CEO and National Director of the Community Security Service (CSS), which works to protect Jewish institutions, Evan Bernstein has been at the forefront of building greater security awareness and better security practices in the American Jewish community. “We are still in a time when antisemitism is very ugly,” Bernstein told The Algemeiner in September 2021. “Even though we saw a bit of a dip during the pandemic, we also saw over the summer, with the war in Gaza, a significant rise in antisemitism and many documented incidents across the country.” Bernstein also urged American Jews to recognize that “there are two silos of hate — the right and the left. It’s both, it’s not one or the other.” A former director of the Anti-Defamation League’s (ADL) office serving the New York and New Jersey regions, Bernstein took the helm of CSS in June 2020.
