The Top 100 People Positively Influencing Jewish Life, 2021


Lorena Khateeb


A member of Israel’s Druze minority, Lorena Khateeb runs social media operations in Arabic for Israel’s Ministry of Foreign Affairs. In the wake of the historic peace agreement in 2020 between Israel and the United Arab Emirates, Khateeb has become the link between Israelis and Emiratis across several social media networks. Describing the peace agreement as her “dream,” Khateeb told an Arab news agency in an extensive interview that “the first thing I thought was about that the people who contact us will no longer be afraid to make their voices heard, and that they will finally be able to get to know the true face of Israel." She added: “I hope that the brave move of the UAE and its leaders will be an opening for more agreements. Peace is our solution and goal for a better future and world.” (Photo: Facebook)
