David Hirsh Algemeiner top 100

We are delighted  that on 19th September 2017 David Hirsh, the  writer and presenter of the film Whitewashed, joined Ollie Anisfeld, J-TV, on the Algemeiner top 100 list. David Hirsh, Professor, Goldsmiths College, University of London. Among anti-BDS activists, Britain’s David Hirsh particularly stands out for giving a name to one of the most insidious forms of modern antisemitism: the “Livingstone Formulation,” named for frequent practitioner Ken Livingstone, the former mayor of London.

Founder, J-TV Oliver Anisfeld has become a Jewish new media mogul at the ripe old age of 22, having launched the British-based YouTube channel J-TV. Anisfeld says the idea for the channel came because of a “gap in the market. … There was an apathy about Jewish identity.. My idea was to create a new, high quality, online global Jewish media channel.” Faced with disinterest, Anisfeld barreled his way into the office of Lord Kestenbaum, a Jewish peer, and quickly convinced him to support the idea. Former Chief Rabbi Jonathan Sacks also embraced the project. The purpose of the channel, Anisfeld states, is “to engage both Jews and non-Jews who want to understand Jewish culture.” The top 100 people positively influencing jewish lif
