The Top 100 People Positively Influencing Jewish Life, 2021


Meghan McCain


Conservative pundit Meghan McCain – the daughter of the late Republican Senator John McCain – spoke out forcefully against rising antisemitism on several occasions during 2021. Appearing on ‘The View’ in May, during the fighting between Israel and Hamas in Gaza, McCain clashed with her fellow panelists for not tackling antisemitism on the left. She spotlighted hate crimes against Jews worldwide, and called for putting “the same energy” to denouncing hate crimes toward Jewish people as those against other minority groups. In an earlier media appearance, McCain made a similar observation, asserting that in the US, antisemitism appeared more likely to be forgiven than “racism of any other form.” She continued: “I think that antisemitism is still sort of the last form of passable bigotry in America… It’s why we, as Americans, seem to find more forgiveness in our heart for antisemitism than we do of racism of any other kind.” (Photo: Wikimedia / Creative Commons License)
