The Top 100 People Positively Influencing Jewish Life, 2022


Jillian Segal

President of the Executive Council of Australian Jewry

Jillian Segal is the president of the Executive Council of Australian Jewry (ECAJ). A professional company director with a legal and regulatory background and private and public sector experience, she has held numerous public positions in Australia, including as chair of the General Sir John Monash Foundation, Australia’s national postgraduate educational scholarship organization, and chair of the Australia Israel Chamber of Commerce. In 2022, Segal mobilized against the Australian government’s decision to backtrack on its commitment to moving its Embassy in Israel from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem. Arguing that the decision had been driven by media pressure, Segal emphasized that “the status of Jerusalem is an important foreign policy issue, and it is demeaning for Australia to have its international position changed in such a shoddy manner.”
