A list of famous Jewish Ambassadors, 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 antisemitism of the past is falling aside to more modern ideals. As a world, we have come a long way since the Holocaust.
