Israeli actress Gal Gadot will present an award at the upcoming Academy Awards ceremony.

Ten new presenters were announced on Wednesday by the academy. Star War’s Mark Hamill, Guatemalan actor Oscar Isaac and Hamilton’s Lin-Manuel Miranda were among those on the list.

Gadot starred in “Wonder Woman,” which did not receive nominations in any categories for this year’s Academy Awards. Gadot also appeared this year as Wonder Woman in the film “Justice League.”

It is Gadot’s first time presenting an Oscar at the annual Academy Award’s ceremony, marking its 90th anniversary this year.  She presented a Golden Globe Award this year for Best Actress to Rachel Brosnahan for her role in “The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel.

The Oscar ceremony this year will take place on March 4.

Help perform the greatest mitzvah: save a life

While life in Israel has returned to normal and hopes are high that Britain is set for a summer without restrictions thanks to vaccines, for billions around the world there is no such imminent light at the end of the tunnel. In the majority of countries around the globe, particularly the poorest, the vaccine rollout has barely kicked off.

That's why Jewish News, the leading source of news and opinion for the entire UK community, is throwing its full weight behind UNICEF’s VaccinAid campaign by using this platform usually reserved for encouraging donations towards our own journalism to instead urge our readers around the globe to perform the greatest mitzvah: saving a life.

We have never before done this for any charity fundraiser but it's hard to recall a campaign that affects so many people, and indeed an entire planet aching for a return to normality. Just like the Chief Rabbi and Rachel Riley, we hope to boost the mission to deliver two billion vaccines, 165 million treatments and 900 million test kits around the world by the end of this year.

Please donate as much as you can, in the spirit of the Talmudic sages: “to save one life is to save the world entire”
