The Top 100 People Positively Influencing Jewish Life, 2019


Sajid Javid

Chancellor of the exchequer

Appointed chancellor of the exchequer by British Prime Minister Boris Johnson in July 2019, Sajid Javid is a key player among the new crop of Conservative Party politicians who have pushed energetically for the UK’s withdrawal from the European Union. Previously the first Muslim to serve as British home secretary, Javid maintains excellent relations with the Jewish community and is an unabashed supporter of Israel. Dispatched on an official visit to the Jewish state soon after becoming chancellor, Javid described the trip as a “privilege.” A bold voice against rising hatred of Jews in Britain, Javid has spoken of his determination “to safeguard our Jewish communities from this creeping antisemitism which not only fuels hate crime, but also extremism and even terrorism.” (Photo: Reuters / Peter Nicholls)
