* Strongly averted, with Jews being perhaps the ''only'' major ethnic group not prominently featured in American pro wrestling over the past century. This could simply be due to the fact that Jews usually don't aspire to professional sports in general, but some small-time Jewish wrestlers (Scotty Goldman, a.k.a. Wrestling/ColtCabana, for instance) have claimed to have been subjected to anti-Semitic taunts from non-Jews from the highest echelons of Wrestling/{{WWE}} and other promotions as they have tried to work their way up through the territories. Perhaps the most famous exception is Wrestling/BillGoldberg, World Heavyweight Champion in both WWE and Wrestling/{{WCW}} and of Romanian Jewish ancestry. Wrestling/KellyKelly is half-Jewish but this was rarely brought up, aside from a couple of throwaway lines on commentary.
** In his autobiography, Goldberg said the only other prominent Jews in pro wrestling besides himself were Wrestling/{{Raven}} (Scott Levy), Wrestling/DeanMalenko (Dean Simon) and Wrestling/BarryHorowitz.

* In ''Series/MadMen'', Roger orders Peggy to hire [[BunnyEarsLawyer the highly eccentric]] Michael Ginsberg as a copywriter against her better judgment simply because Roger thinks that every ad agency needs a Jew to be successful.
** Also, in the pilot, they bring in a Jewish low-level employee to a meeting with Rachel Menken, a Jewish businesswoman and client, and pretend he is a "rising star" in the agency.

* The [[Film/TheRedBaron 2008 version]] of the RedBaron has a fictional Jewish pilot in his scadrille who uses a Star of David as his symbol, for no seeming reason but to reassure viewers that [[SubvertedTrope Not]] AllGermansAreNazis and that it is okay to cheer for a military man from the ''Second'' Reich.

* PlayedForLaughs in ''Series/TheSuiteLifeOfZackAndCody'' when London reveals she celebrates Hanukkah, despite not being ethnically Jewish. She also occasionally throws Yiddish slang terms out there.
--> '''London:''' Miss out on eight days of presents? Not this Shiska.
* When creating ''Series/SavedByTheBell'' Lisa Turtle was going to be a rich Jewish girl. Given the show's tendency for the VerySpecialEpisode, you can imagine there would have been one about Hanukkah or Passover. However Lark Voorhees gave the best audition (despite the casting calls asking for white females only) and Lisa became black instead.
* ''{{Series/Scrubs}}'' lampshades this in an ImagineSpot for Elliot where she imagines creating the perfect robot finacee - and he's also [[MatzoFever Jewish]]. She then says her parents will kill her for marrying a Jew.
* ''Series/BandOfBrothers'' has an accidental example. Joe Liebgott is portrayed as a Jew in the miniseries, to play up the emotional impact of the concentration camp episode. However in reality he wasn't actually Jewish - and his comrades mistakenly thought he was. His family revealed this information after the miniseries aired.

* ''{{WesternAnimation/Rugrats}}'' has the lead character be half-Jewish on his mother's side, and his AlterKocker grandparents from "the old country" are recurring characters. The cartoon's location was intended to be deliberately vague but this trope, and a couple of other hints, place it in southern California. They do have the obligatory Hanukkah and Passover episodes.
* ''WesternAnimation/AsToldByGinger'' reveals that Ginger and her family are also one quarter Jewish towards the end of the first season. What's more is that recurring mean girl Mipsy is also Jewish (having mentioned a Bat Mitzvah in throwaway comments). Likely in reference to this trope, Ginger tries to throw an 'even Stevens' holiday party that's half a Christmas party and half a Hanukkah celebration.

* Many of [[Creator/JohnGreen John Green's]] books have Jewish characters - [[Literature/PaperTowns Margo]], [[Literature/LookingforAlaska Pudge]], etc.

* As of 2012, the United States Supreme Court contains three Jewish justices - Ruth Bader Ginsberg, Stephen Breyer, and Elena Kagan - or one-third of the Court's total. However, there has never been a Jewish Chief Justice, and there was no Jewish Justice on the court from 1969 to 1993.

However, there has never been a Jewish Chief Justice, and there was no Jewish Justice on the court from 1969 to 1993. Interestingly, the other six Justices are all Catholics, something that was also once very unusual in the US-it's actually the first time in history there's been no Protestant on the court.
