The Top 100 People Positively Influencing Jewish Life, 2022


Ahmed Obaid Al Mansoori

Museum Founder

The Emirati founder of the Crossroads of Civilization Museum, in 2022 Ahmed Obaid Al Mansoori became the first prominent Muslim Arab personality to participate at an event of the World Zionist Congress in Basel, Switzerland. During celebrations marking the 125th anniversary of the First Zionist Congress, Al Mansoori revealed a handwritten letter signed by Theodor Herzl, the father of the Zionist movement. “I have great respect for the State of Israel, for our Jewish friends, brothers, sisters and cousins. We are brothers before being cousins actually,” he said in an interview. “We need to stop antisemitism, anti-Zionism and the delegitimization of Israel.” (Photo: Youtube screenshot)
