The Top 100 People Positively Influencing Jewish Life, 2023


Yaël Braun-Pivet


Yaël Braun-Pivet is a French lawyer and politician who has served as president of the French National Assembly since June 2022. Born into a Jewish family in the city of Strasbourg, Braun-Pivet is the first Jewish female to hold the post. Following the devastating Hamas invasion of southern Israel on Oct. 7, Braun-Pivet did not miss an opportunity to declare solidarity with Israel, lighting the National Assembly building in the colors of the Israeli flag in the days after the massacre and calling for "unconditional solidarity" with the Jewish state. Together with another Jewish parliamentarian, Meyer Habib, Braun-Pivet is currently under the 24-hour protection of the French police, having received death threats from Hamas supporters because of her stance.
