For some reason Jews have always been interested in the influence we've had
on society (Click here for an article by Mark Twain about this
phenomenon). For example, we love to count the number of Jewish Nobel Prize
winners or major corporations headed by MOTs (Members of the Tribe). Here is
a link to a pretty complete categorized
list of famous Jews.
Aside from the many Jewish jugglers I know in Israel (see
Juggling in Israel, below), here is a list of MOTs on the juggling scene
(in no special order):
Avner "The Eccentric" Eisenberg
Yosef (Jonathon) Rosenberg, 1989 IJA Juniors first place
Cindy Marvell (Friedberg), 1989 IJA Seniors first place
email@example.com, former art director of Juggler's World
Magazine, life member of the IJA, Greg Cohen's former business partner in
Gravity Specific (a prop making business), a former board member of Mosaic
Outdoor Clubs of America, Webmaster of MannaOutdoor.com: Food for the Jewish
Outdoor Soul, and a few other things.
We all know that according to Halacha (Jewish law) that in order to be
Jewish one must either be born of a Jewish mother or formally convert.
Regardless, I'm adding the following people below who apparently have Jewish
fathers (especially since their names tend to sound so Jewish):
If you know any other names (or would like your name added) to the list,
please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
I don't want to cause a scare that the Jews are taking over the juggling
world, but I did happen to notice that many IJA board members and staff have
Jewish-sounding names (Markowitz,, Schneiderman). If anyone can verify,
please let me know.
