The Top 100 People Positively Influencing Jewish Life, 2022


Sharon McMahon


Sharon McMahon is a former high school government and law teacher who earned a reputation as “America’s Government Teacher” amidst the historic 2020 election proceedings for her viral efforts on Instagram to educate the general public on political misinformation. For her followers, McMahon represents “sanity, reason, truthiness, facts, in just a sea of yelling and screaming and anger,” as one of them told The Atlantic magazine in 2022. Among the urgent issues McMahon has tackled on her popular podcast is antisemitism. In November, she hosted seminal documentary filmmaker Ken Burns to discuss his latest project on the US and the Nazi Holocaust, noting that “as Americans, we are often at our best when we commit to considering and acting on behalf of our fellow human neighbors.” (Photo: Facebook)
