The Top 100 People Positively Influencing Jewish Life, 2019


Gail Asper

President and a trustee, The Asper Foundation

Canadian philanthropist Gail Asper is working on establishing a new museum in Tel Aviv to showcase generations of Jewish achievement -- a fitting gift for Israel’s 75th birthday in 2023, by when the ambitious project aims to be complete. She wants for the World Jewish Museum to serve as a story of celebration and Jewish innovation in all fields. Asper has a successful track record; in 2014, she launched a $350 million award-winning human rights museum in Winnipeg, her hometown. She took on that project after her father, entrepreneur and philanthropist Izzy Alper, passed away. The Canadian Museum of Human Rights was the first national museum in nearly 50 years established outside Ottawa. (Photo: Courtesy)
