The Top 100 People Positively Influencing Jewish Life, 2017


Danny Danon

Israeli ambassador to the United Nations

Israeli ambassador to the UN Danny Danon has proven over the last year that Israel can fight and win at the often hostile international body through his election as vice-president of the UN General Assembly.

Appointed UN envoy in 2015, Danon has served in numerous government positions, most prominently during six years as a member of Knesset with stints as deputy minister of defense and minister of science, technology, and space, as well as major roles at the Jewish Agency and the Likud party, where he lost a bid for leadership to Prime Minister Netanyahu.

Celebrating victory in his campaign to become vice-president of the UNGA, he tweeted, “We've proven once again that Israel is able to serve in significant positions at the @UN & the attempts to block this progress won't succeed.” (Photo credit: World Likud.)
