    Are we talking practising or culturally Jewish?

    Someone’s mentioned Albert Einstein, but no-one has come up with Rabbi Lionel Blue yet. He made listening to Radio 4 a pleasure.

    Seeing as Victoria Coren has been snapped up, there’s the simply wonderful Miriam Margolyes.

    A person’s religion or ethnicity is irrelevant as far as I’m concerned, in fact the one thing that concerns me least is whatever deity someone believes in, far more important is how they behave as a human being.
    It’s never, ever occurred to me to ask or even wonder.

    That’s why this is a bit of a tongue in cheek thread, but you’ll notice that no-one’s actually talking about Jewishness. Kind of nice to highlight that Jewish people are just normal people and can be celebs like anyone else.

    What if you found out that I am your overlord? How will you feel? Do you feel disgusted? ๐Ÿ˜ˆ

    edit: This is just an assumption but you need think about it that I am your overlord. ๐Ÿ˜ˆ

    Bit patronising?! ๐Ÿ˜€ Especially in the entertainment/film biz, where they’re very well represented!

    Not sure about favourite Jew, but the Jewish person I’ve voluntarily heard speak most about Jewishness is Marc Maron. I really enjoy his podcasts, and a few of them, when he’s interviewing someone else who’s Jewish, get into what it means to them to be Jewish, how it’s more than just belief in a god, and actual belief in the actual God is secondary to the social/societal/cultural aspect.

    I think the Mel Brooks interview gets into it, but certainly the Jeff Goldblum one does, and the Ben Sidran one is absolutely fascinating, from start to finish, on every aspect they touch on (he’s a jazz/rock n roll pianist, played with everyone. There’s a great section at the end where they get into Jewishness and getting more “Jewey” as they get older, figuring out the bits of the culture that start to unexpectedly chime with them.
