The Top 100 People Positively Influencing Jewish Life, 2019


Eric Pickles

UK Special Envoy for Post-Holocaust Issues

As a Conservative member of the British Parliament for more than 20 years, Eric Pickles established close ties with the UK Jewish community through his stalwart support for Israel and determined stance against antisemitism. Elevated to the House of Lords in 2018, Pickles also serves as the UK’s special envoy for post-Holocaust issues. In that capacity, he is working with the UK Holocaust Memorial Foundation to establish a new world-class learning center in London to advance Holocaust education worldwide. Lord Pickles continues to challenge antisemitism, whether on the right or the left, wherever he encounters it. In the last year, he charged conservative Hungarian Prime Minister Viktor Orban with deploying “vivid antisemitism” and told Jeremy Corbyn of the British Labour Party that a "base and horrid" antisemitism had crystallized under his leadership.
