The Top 100 People Positively Influencing Jewish Life, 2023


Paul Gigot

Editor, Vice President

Paul Gigot is the editorial page editor and vice president of The Wall Street Journal, a position he has held since 2001. He is responsible for the newspaper's editorials, op-ed articles, and Leisure & Arts criticism and directs the editorial pages of the paper's Asian and European editions and the OpinionJournal.com website. He is also the host of the weekly half-hour news program, the "Journal Editorial Report," on the Fox News Channel. In 2000, Gigot was awarded the Pulitzer Prize for Commentary, winning praise for his "insightful columns on politics and government." In the wake of the October invasion of Israel by Hamas terrorists backed by Iran, Gigot argued that US policy towards Tehran is "in crucial need of rethinking ... I wonder if, to put it bluntly, Washington is going to wake up to what is actually happening in the world and start to rethink this retreat from global leadership and indeed re-arm ourselves instead of what we've been doing, which is letting our defenses deteriorate."
