Overview

Jewish men and women have been influential in religion, politics, music, commerce, law, sports, diplomacy, philosophy, literature, art, and motion pictures. Who were the most influential Jews, and how do they rank? Individuals from the biblical, classical, medieval, and modern eras appear in the pages of The Jewish 100. This updated edition contains various changes to the 1994 edition, including an entry on slain Israeli leader Yitzhak Rabin.

Abraham is the father of the world's three major religions. Karl Marx created an ideology followed by billions. Jesus is still worshipped by billions more, but who is more influential: Mary, the woman who gave birth to him, or Saul of Tarsus/Apostle Paul, the man who spread his Gospel? Einstein's theories split the atom and changed the world. Freud's exploration of the psyche has forever altered our perception of ourselves. But who ranks in front of whom?

Eminently readable, informative, and entertaining, The Jewish 100 is history on a vast scale. It is a panoramic story of an irrepressible poeple who have risen to the greatest heights in a variety of fields, including such master musicians as Mahler, Mendelssohn, Sondheim, Gershwin, and Goodman; such writers and thinkers as Proust, Spinoza, Marx, Buber, and Maimonides; the pioner of media, including Mayer and Sarnoff; diplomats, statesman, and warriors such as King David, Ben-Gurion, Disraeli, Weizmann, and Kissinger; as well as dozens of other giants who have shaped their times and continue to exert influence to this day.
