A list of current Jewish Congressmen, with photos. These are important Jews who take part in running the United States government. There was a time when an American Jewish Congressman 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.

We can take heart that the antisemitism of the past is falling aside to more modern ideals. As a world, we have come a long way since the Holocaust.
