A list of current Jewish Senators, with photos. These are important Jews who take part in running the United States government. There was a time when an American Jewish politician was rare or even unheard of. Today, although still a minority, the concept of "Jews in politics", a Jew seeking public office, is hardly unusual. Although less than 2.5% of the US population is Jewish, 10% of the US Senate follow the Judaic faith, and almost 7% of the House of Representatives.

We can take heart that the anti-semitism of the past is falling aside to more modern ideals. As a world, we have come a long way since the Holocaust. So who are some of the current Jewish Senators? Al Franken of SNL fame is the Senator from Minnesota and Barbara Boxer is another example of a Jewish Senator.
