Jewish American Mobsters and Organized Crime Figures

A list of Jewish-American gangsters and criminals from throughout US history. This list includes notable Jewish organized crime figures from the 19th, 20th, and 21st centuries. These include members of specifically Jewish criminal organizations, as well as Jews that interacted with some of the most famous American mobsters, along with other criminals and gangland figures.

Several of the Jewish mobsters on the list have become iconic, ranking among the most famous Jewish gangsters ever. Lefty Rosenthal and Arnold Rothstein, for example, have become even more famous as Jewish mobsters, particularly in recent years with their inclusion in the HBO series Boardwalk Empire.

Other Jewish gangsters on the list have also famously inspired characters in film and television. Benjamin "Bugsy" Siegel, for example, is often credited with the creation of syndicate casinos and Las Vegas, and was portrayed by Warren Beatty in the motion picture Bugsy. Additionally, Frank "Lefty" Rosenthal inspired the Robert De Niro character Sam "Ace" Rothstein in Martin Scorsese's Casino.
