The Top 100 People Positively Influencing Jewish Life, 2019

GOVERNMENT

Elaine Luria, Josh Gottheimer, and Max Rose

US representatives

US Democratic lawmakers Elaine Luria of Virginia, Josh Gottheimer of New Jersey, and Max Rose of New York, all have stood up to antisemitism as part of their official role. Both Luria and Rose are freshman lawmakers, while Gottheimer is serving a second term. Earlier this year, Gottheimer and Luria led a letter from 25 members of the Democratic Caucus urging Democratic House leadership to address and condemn recent antisemitic rhetoric from within its ranks. “We cannot remain silent in the face of hateful speech or actions. We hope that our caucus will take swift action to address these issues in the coming days by reiterating our rejection of antisemitism,” stated the letter, to which Rose was a signatory. It also stated, “We feel strongly that we cannot return to a time when it was considered fair game to question the motives, patriotism, and loyalty of some members of Congress.” (Photo: US Congress)
