Gal Gadot was named as one of the top 100 people influencing Jewish life, at Algemeiner’s J100 gala in Manhattan.
The Israeli actress and model was named alongside Hillel Neuer, executive director of UN Watch, a human rights NGO in Geneva, Switzerland.
Celebrating his award, Mr Neuer tweeted he was surprised to be named in the same list as a model.
1st time my name was ever mentioned in the same sentence as Gal Gadot—and I fear the last. https://t.co/aWZ1XMG1MP— Hillel Neuer (@HillelNeuer) September 19, 2017
The event, which was held at Cipriani 25 Broadway, is the fourth of its kind and was hosted by television personality Sarah Elizabeth Cupp.
Elie Wiesel, Harvey Weinstein, Donald and Ivanka Trump, along with Rupert Murdoch, are some of the previous influencers and attendees of the event.
Czech President Milos Zeman and renowned Israeli artist Yaacov Agam were given Algemeiner’s prestigious “Warrior for Truth” award at this year’s celebration.
