The Top 100 People Positively Influencing Jewish Life, 2017


Gerald Ronson

Founding chairman, Community Security Trust

Gerald Ronson, CBE is perhaps Britain’s most prominent Jewish philanthropist. Head of the massive Heron International property development company, he is the founding chairman of the Community Security Trust, one of the country’s most essential Jewish organizations.

As Ronson himself describes it, CST’s work covers physical security, political research, and helping victims of antisemitism. … Jewish organizations, schools, synagogues, old-age homes, welfare centers, community centers, and communal events have CST secure their activities.”

Ronson warns of the rise of anti-Jewish racism in the Muslim community and the far-left, saying that if the Labor party’s anti-Israel leader Jeremy Corbyn is elected, “You’ll see an increase in antisemitism,” making it uncomfortable “for Jews who want to live their lives in the UK as fully identified Jews, and not be uncomfortable if they were wearing a kippah or tzitzit as they walk down the high street without being attacked in some form or another.” (Photo credit: Screenshot.)
