The Top 100 People Positively Influencing Jewish Life, 2019


Gabriel Davidovich

Chief rabbi of Argentina

In February 2019, Argentinian Chief Rabbi Gabriel Davidovich was brutally beaten in his home, suffering nine broken ribs and a punctured lung. He has alleged that the attackers told him during the home invasion that they knew he was the rabbi of the Argentine Israelite Mutual Association (AMIA) Jewish Center, which was targeted in 1994 in what the nation’s deadliest terrorist attack to date. The Argentinian Jewish community, the largest in South America, has demanded that police approach the attack as a hate crime, arguing that its vicious nature suggests careful planning as well as knowledge of the victim’s identity. To date, at least six suspects have been arrested. (Photo: AMIA)
