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 other criminals and gangland figures.

Several of the Jewish mobsters on the list have become iconic , Lefty Rosenthal and Arnold Rothstein, particularly in recent years with their inclusion in the HBO series "Boardwalk Empire." Other Jewish gangsters on the list have also 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."
