The Top 100 People Positively Influencing Jewish Life, 2019


Ted Deutch

US representative

Congressman Ted Deutch, a Democrat representing Florida, advocates passionately and consistently for a strong US-Israel relationship. Deutch, who is Jewish, serves as ranking member of the House Foreign Affairs Committee’s influential Middle East and North Africa Subcommittee, where he champions Israel’s security during a time of great volatility in the Middle East. He routinely introduces legislation that strives to improve bilateral security and economic ties, such as the recent US-Israel Cooperation Enhancement and Regional Security Act, which passed the House this summer. Deutch also introduced a bipartisan resolution to condemn the deadly 1994 attack on the Asociación Mutual Israelita Argentina, or AMIA, Jewish community center in Buenos Aires, and call for the suspected Iranian and Hezbollah operatives behind the massacre to be held accountable. And in June 2019, he was part of a bipartisan group of US representatives who sent a letter to German Chancellor Angela Merkel, urging her to designate Hezbollah as a terrorist group.
