http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_famous_Jews

This page is a list of people identified as Jews, either by themselves or by others. "Jewishness" has the meanings both of "adherence to the religion of Judaism" and "membership in the ethnic group 'Jews.'" People of both groups are listed here. By other criteria, these people may be listed under other nationalities as well.

 

This page does not differentiate between Orthodox, Conservative, Reform and Reconstructionist Jews. It also does not take into account whether those listed acknowledge their Jewish identity or origins. Jewish tradition defines a Jew as a person with a Jewish mother. Most Jews would not agree with listing someone who was not brought up Jewish, or who does not adhere to Jewish beliefs as "Jewish." Many listed here may have spent their lives disguising their Jewish origins, and married gentile (non-Jewish) spouses. In many cases the individuals listed may have only one Jewish parent. They may have never practiced Judaism, and may even have adopted another faith, or may be secular or atheist.

START-UP NATION - The Story of Israel's Economic Miracle

http://www.startupnationbook.com/

Israel has more companies on the tech-oriented NASDAQ
stock exchange than any country outside the US

more than all of Europe, India, and China combined.

Nor is Israeli innovation limited to computers, security, and communications; the Jewish state leads the world in medical device patents, and is a strong global player in cleantech and biotech.

"When an Israeli man wants to date a woman, he asks her out that night. When an Israeli entrepreneur has a business idea, he will start it that week.
