The Top 100 People Positively Influencing Jewish Life, 2021


Hen Mazzig

Writer and activist

Describing himself as a Mizrahi Jew, the “son of Amazigh and Iraqi Refugees” who is engaged in “loving myself 10x more than they hate us,” Israeli writer Hen Mazzig is a senior fellow at the Tel Aviv Institute. In August 2020, Mazzig started a viral movement, #JewishPrivilege, with Jews telling personal stories of discrimination and abuse. As a young Israeli, he served in the IDF for almost five years as an openly gay commander. During his service as a lieutenant in the COGAT unit, he worked as an intermediary between the Israeli Defense Forces (the IDF), the Palestinian Authority, the UN, and the many non-governmental organizations that work in the West Bank.
