The Top 100 People Positively Influencing Jewish Life, 2019


Jacques Gauthier


The work of Jacques Gauthier, an international jurist and Canadian lawyer, is as valuable as ever, especially as anti-Israel sentiment surges worldwide. An expert on the status of Jerusalem and Israel, Gauthier continues to speak publicly about the importance of Israel’s legal rights. He has argued powerfully that those in the United States and in the global community who claim that Israel has no legal titles to its land are relying on a false historical assumption. “It is absolutely vital to counter the generally accepted narrative that Israel’s presence and claims in Jerusalem violate international law,” he said at a recent event. “The historical truths undergirding the legitimacy of Israel’s sovereignty claims must be presented as effectively as possible.” (Photo: JBS / Screenshot)
