Jews, the followers of the religion called Judaism, trace their origin to Abraham, who established the belief that there is only one God, the creator of the universe. With a total population of over 14 million, Jews are concentrated majorly in three countries: The United States (6 million), Israel (3.7 million), and the Soviet Union (2.5 million).
While a book said that Jews are distinguished by their noses, I must bring to your notice that they are distinguished by their characteristics, that have made them the most successful people in the world. More than 60% of all employed Jews are in one of the three highest status job categories: professional or technical (41%), management & executive (13%) and business & finance (7%).
Astonishingly, Jews account for America’s 200 most influential celebrities. They make more than half of the 100 Nobel laureates; one-third of the professors at prestigious universities in the United States; one quarter of the nation’s lawyers; 60 percent of the nation’s leading writers of literature, drama, and music; and one half of the world’s richest entrepreneurs.
There is a classic saying that ‘the world’s money is in the pocket of Americans while the Americans’ money is in the pocket of Jews.’ As per the facts, 48% Of U.S. billionaires are Jewish. They consider that everything has its own value, and everything can be regained except priceless wisdom. A lot many people you know and follow are un-highlighted Jews, for there is much jealousy in the world for them.
With an estimated 7.4 billion people on earth, Jews comprise a mere 0.2 percent. This makes the following list of accomplishments by Jews particularly more impressive that it intended to be.
1. Mark Zuckerberg
Founder & CEO of Facebook, with a net worth of 62.7 billion USD, he is just 29 years old. While that’s insane, you would have never known that he is a Jew who changed the way world communicates, before he was 30 years of age. Interestingly, he is color-blind and wears the same grey T-shirt every day to save time.
2. Larry Page
Co-founder of Google & CEO Google's parent company, Alphabet Inc. he was born to a Jewish mother. Estimated to have a net worth of 44 billion USD, this person is the inventor of PageRank, Google's best-known search ranking algorithm. He has a 14-year-old vocal cord nerve strain which is slowly reducing his ability to speak but not deterring his vision for future.
3. Sergey Brin
Co-founder of Google and President of Google's parent company, Alphabet Inc., with a net worth of 42.4 billion USD, this Russian-born American computer scientist belongs to a Jewish family. He is known to create the world's most popular search engine, but we forget to acknowledge that he has been a force behind many of the cool side projects, like the self-driving car and Google Glass.
4. Charles Revson
Founder of Revlon and pioneer of cosmetic industry, this Jewish lad created his own success story by taking his company from nail polish to a wide array of brands and billions of dollars. The company started with a single product, but today has a widespread customer base, which includes you and me.
5. Jon Stewart
Comedian and TV host (Comedy Central), his sarcastic, sardonic and incisive sense of humor, covering politics and other news stories have been loved by the audience. Stewart is a Jew and was inducted into the 2015 New Jersey Hall of Fame for his services in the Performance Arts. You can catch a glimpse of his extraordinary persona on ESPN where he is going to co-host ‘Sports Center’ To Support Wounded Veteran Athletes.
6. Michael Dell
Founder and CEO of Dell Technologies, with a net worth of 20.3 billion USD, he is yet another Jew who helped the launch of personal computer revolution in the 1980s. Not only this, at the age of 12, he made his first business venture by selling stamps and at the age of 16, he further developed his business acumen by selling newspaper publications for the Houston Post. Later he fascinated towards computers and he opened a Mac PC to find out what's inside. By 1992, just eight years after Dell was founded, Michael Dell was the youngest CEO of a Fortune 500 company.
7. Bob Iger
: Chairman and CEO of The Walt Disney Company, he is a Jewish entertainment executive who oversaw the acquisitions of Pixar (2006), Marvel Entertainment (2009) and Lucasfilm (2012). He is also the man behind the expansion of Disney theme parks in East Asia. He has many recognitions to his credit, which includes CEO of the Year by Chief Executive Magazine (2014). All this didn't happen easily. He rose daily at 4:30 A.M. and was at the office within two hours to earn himself a name.
8. Jan Koum
Co-founder and CEO of WhatsApp, he is a Jew of Ukrainian-American origin with a net worth of 9.5 billion USD. He initially swept floors to make his ends meet. Astonishingly, he applied for jobs at Facebook and Twitter, but was rejected by both of them. Later, Facebook acquired WhatsApp in 2014. In short, it was Koum who first visualized the power of social media and need for a mobile compatible messaging application that doesn’t supports advertising. And what a wonder he gifted us.
9. Arthur Ochs Sulzberger, Jr.
Current publisher and CEO of the New York Times, he is the great grandson of the Adolph Simon Ochs, the Jew who owned the New York Times. The Sulzberger family also owns, through the New York Times Co., 33 other newspapers, including the Boston Globe; twelve magazines, including McCall’s and Family Circle with circulations of more than 5 million each; seven radio and TV broadcasting stations; a cable-TV system; and three book publishing companies. Acknowledging this, it should not come as a surprise that 90% of Press Media is owned by Jews which includes that Wall Street Journal and the Washington Post.
10. Larry Ellison
Co-founder of Oracle Corporation and the CEO from its founding until September 2014, this Jewish entrepreneur holds a net worth of 59.6 billion USD. He never finished college because he started out building databases for the CIA. As a matter of fact, had success in yachting and he is a licensed aircraft pilot too. Even at 72 years of age, he is greatly involved in Oracle and has donated up to 1% of his wealth to charity, as mentioned in Jewish traditions. It was his mind that brought Oracle into the world.
11. Aaroz Swatz
Founder of RSS (Web feed format), Creative Commons (Organization) and Reddit (Social news site), he is yet another Jew who deserves a mention here. Although, he hanged himself to death in 2013, while he was just 26 years old, as a solution to the allegations of hacking crimes, he was a well-known computer programmer. While he was alive, Steve Huffman and Alexis Ohanian absorbed Swartz and Infogami (his venture) into Reddit. Later in 2007, he was fired from Reddit. However, his ideas and rewritten code in Python, stands today in the form of ‘Reddit’, a great media sharing platform.
Like them, there many names in the leader boards of major ventures such as Isaac Perlmutter, CEO of Marvel Entertainment; William Fox, Founder of Fox Film Corporation; Bram Cohen, author of P2P (Bit Torrent protocol), co-founder of Bit Torrent, Inc.; Jill Abramson, Journalist and ‘New York Times’ former executive editor; Steve Ballmer, former CEO of Microsoft; Gary D. Cohn, Chief Economic Advisor to President Donald Trump and the list is endless.
Even historic figures like Albert Einstein, Karl Marx, Sigmund Freud, Heisenberg and Neil Bohr were Jews. This in itself is an evident proof why the world has a bit of jealousy for the Jews.
Intriguingly, pregnant Jewish women are always singing, playing the piano, and reading from mathematics textbooks. This might be the reason why they give birth to names that are meant to be successful.
