The Top 100 People Positively Influencing Jewish Life, 2022


Alex Bernat


Harvard University sophomore Alex Bernat has become one of the elite Ivy League institution’s most visible and vocal advocates on behalf of Israel and Zionism. Writing for the Harvard Crimson in May 2022, a few days after the Harvard newspaper endorsed the so-called “Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions” (BDS) movement targeting Israel, Bernat stated that to “single out Israel for economic, academic, technological and cultural boycott is to single out the Jewish people.” More recently, Bernat voiced concern over the invitation to Mohammed el-Kurd, a controversial Palestinian activist who has been accused of “blatant” antisemitism by campus Jewish groups, to speak at the Harvard campus. “I think it’s high time that the Harvard administration take a more vocal stance against antisemitic acts on campus,” Bernat told The Algemeiner.
