- Hey, did you know that Bob Dylan is Jewish?
- Of course I did! But was Marylin Monroe really Jewish? And what about Harrison Ford?
How many times have we had this conversation without being able to know for sure?
You can now find the answer with your iPhone thanks to the App "Jew or not Jew?"
This App puts together for you thousands of Jewish personalities and defines their Jewish background: Jewish mother, Jewish father or convert to Judaism. Coming from over 50 different countries, these personalities are grouped into categories such as cinema stars, musicians, businesspeople, Nobel prizes winners, journalists, politicians, sportspeople and so on.
This app is only intended for fun. Nothing more! It does not aim to prove the superiority of any racial group. Remember that for each Jew listed in any one category there are many, many more equally talented non-Jews! The app simply shows that through hard work many Jews, often from immigrant families, have managed to achieve recognition.
A lot of research has been done to collect the data for this App. However the result is only as reliable as its sources! So please don't forget to report any mistakes you find. They will fixed as fast as possible!
