List Rules Television characters who are Jewish, convert to Judaism, or are practicing Jews

List of the funniest Jewish TV characters. The greatest television series characters, who happen to be of the Hebraic descent, have guaranteed us laughs since they first appeared in their respective shows. We have compiled a list of the cream of the crop when it comes to Jewish sitcom stars.

The rankings include Jewish characters who had their own shows -- and their own names, like Jerry Seinfeld and Larry David. Rhoda Morgenstern from The Mary Tyler Moore Show is here on the list because not only is she funny and Jewish, but she went from the Jewish best friend to starring in her very own spin-off show, which was no easy feat at the time. After her, we have reaped the hilarious benefits of strong female Jewish comedy characters like Monica Geller on Friends and Grace Adler on Will and Grace, which are both as mainstream as they come!
