The Top 100 People Positively Influencing Jewish Life, 2022


Ted Deutch

Lawyer and Former Congressman

Ted Deutch, a lifelong Jewish and pro-Israel activist, assumed the role of CEO of American Jewish Committee (AJC) on October 1, 2022. He joined AJC following more than 12 years as a Democrat in the US Congress representing Broward and Palm Beach Counties in Florida. In Congress, Deutch served as chair of the House Ethics Committee, a senior member of the House Judiciary Committee, and a senior member of the House Foreign Affairs Committee, on which he served as chair of the Middle East, North Africa, and Global Counterterrorism Subcommittee. He collaborated closely with members on both sides of the aisle to advance the security interests of the United States, Israel, and their allies, authoring legislation advancing US-Israel cooperation in energy, agriculture, technology and trade, and fighting back against efforts to delegitimize Israel at the United Nations. One of his goals at AJC is to enable “high school kids all across the country to be able to participate in advocacy training which will make them stronger advocates... That’s now an ongoing focus of AJC.” (Photo: Wikimedia / Creative Commons License)
