9 Jews Named to Time 100 List – Can You Guess Them All?

Jews were prominently featured in Time magazine’s annual list of the world’s 100 most influential people, which was released on Thursday.

Husband-and-wife White House advisers Jared Kushner and Ivanka Trump received separate entries. Kushner’s bio was written by former Secretary of State Henry Kissinger, who said that he has “sporadically exchanged views” with Kushner over the past 18 months. Trump’s was penned by Wendi Murdoch, who was reportedly responsible for reuniting the couple after they briefly broke up in 2008. “My daughters have long looked up to her,” Murdoch wrote. “Now women and girls around the globe can look up to her too.”

Other Jewish politicos were Federal Reserve Chair Janet Yellen as well as Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer, whom his predecessor Harry Reid called “the right man for this moment.”

Snapchat creator and CEO Evan Spiegel was also highlighted in a short burst from celebrity Snapper DJ Khaled.

Spotlighted from the world of entertainment were photographer Cindy Sherman, Hollywood horror maestro Jason Blum and new Broadway star/Camp Ramah alumnus Ben Platt.

Rounding out the list of tribe members was Theo Epstein, the president of baseball operations for the Chicago Cubs, who broke a 108-year streak by winning the World Series last fall.
