The Top 100 People Positively Influencing Jewish Life, 2021


Mitch Silber


Mitch Silber is the executive director of the Community Security Initiative at the UJA-Federation of New York and the Jewish Community Relations Council of New York, a post he took up in February 2020. A former director of intelligence analysis at the New York City Police Department, Silber has said that his priority is to “really to reduce the climate of fear that unfortunately exists now.” Silber noted that he took the job because he’s “not really a person who sits on the sidelines watching the action happen…After 9/11, I left a career in corporate finance to get into the world of counterterrorism to protect in the city. I had a societal obligation to step up, so this was a very similar decision.” (Photo: Wikimedia / Creative Commons License)
