The Top 100 People Positively Influencing Jewish Life, 2019


Hanan Melcer

Deputy chief justice, Supreme Court of Israel

When Deputy Chief Justice Hanan Melcer was initially named to Israel’s high court in 2007, it marked the first time in many years that a private sector lawyer was picked. In his related role as chairman of the nation’s Central Elections Committee, Melcer has overall responsibility for ensuring fairness and accuracy in voting. Israel’s recent elections provided the first test of an initiative spearheaded by Melcer to provide additional oversight in voting and in counting and analyzing the results. Prior to joining the court, he founded one of Israel's most respected law firms and was involved with the legal handling of major infrastructure projects in the country.
