* Abba Eban
* Jake Gyllenhaal (mother is Jewish)
* Creator/JosephGordonLevitt
* Creator/AndrewGarfield

* Music/BarryManilow
* [[http://www.indyweek.com/indyweek/dukes-bob-lefkowitz-wins-the-nobel-prize/Content?oid=3239097 A nice Jewish Nobel laureate]].
-->Lefkowitz is so well-loved that it's difficult to locate any detractors, personally or professionally.
* Creator/NeilGaiman
* Creator/DanielRadcliffe is proud of his Jewish ancestry, but also a militant atheist, [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Daniel_Radcliffe#Personal_life in his own words]].
* Children's authors Creator/MauriceSendak, Eric Carle, and Creator/ShelSilverstein.
* [[{{Music/Rush}} Geddy Lee]]. He's even described ''himself'' as a "nice Jewish boy from Toronto." (Proudly Jewish in the sense that he's immersed in Jewish culture and is the son of a pair of Holocaust survivors. Religiously, he describes himself as an atheist.)
* Danny Avidan, of WebVideo/GameGrumps and NinjaSexParty fame is super sweet, [[MeanCharacterNiceActor especially compared to his douchey persona as Danny Sexbang in the later]].
* Merrick Brian Garland, considered for the Supreme Court largely because of his collegiality and moderation.
* Creator/MaraWilson could be considered the DistaffCounterpart of this trope -- [[BewareTheNiceOnes unless you piss her off]], in which case she wields UNHOLY POWERS FROM BEYOND OUR REALM! WebVideo/TheNostalgiaCritic and WebVideo/TheNostalgiaChick both found this out the hard way.
* Two prominent musical acts from TheSixties -- Music/BobDylan and Music/SimonAndGarfunkel.
* Creator/StanleyKubrick, [[PrimaDonnaDirector believe it or not]], could actually be pretty nice to his family and [[KindheartedCatLover cats]].
* He may have specialized in playing creepy villains, but Creator/PeterLorre (born László Löwenstein) was by all accounts [[MeanCharacterNiceActor charming, friendly guy]].
* [[Music/TheRamones Joey Ramone]] was a Jewish GentleGiant, who always came across as a very friendly and down to earth guy in interviews. He also [[KindHeartedCatLover loved cats.]]
* Creator/MichaelRosen has been a popular author among children for nearly thirty years. It should be noted though that, while he was born and raised Jewish, he now identifies as an athiest.
* Creator/LaurenBacall admitted in her autobiography that she found it hard to keep up to this stereotype around her family as a child. When she dated Creator/KirkDouglas when she was a teenager in drama school (who's also Jewish), her grandmother was very pleased and so was her mother. Despite her marrying Creator/HumphreyBogart much later (who wasn't Jewish), her family liked him too.

** {{Jesus}} makes this trope OlderThanFeudalism. One of the possible titles for JesusWasWayCool was Jesus Was A Nice Jewish Boy, and it's mentioned several times throughout the article. This is sometimes taken to extremes: there's a hymn titled "Gentle Jesus Meek And Mild"... [[SubvertedTrope which is an ironic hymn]]. Jesus had differing ideas about the definition of "meekness" then the modern connotation and, even in the Bible, has his moments of KungFuJesus. He was not a [[ChroniclesOfNarnia tame carpenter]].
