These 12 faces appear at the top of Wikipedia’s article on “American Jews.” And 12 American Jews those indeed are. But can you name them all? The answers also appear on the Wikipedia page, so don’t click the link until you’re done!

And, bonus question: befitting the diverse scope of the American Jewish experience, out of the 12 Jews pictured,
• two were not born in America
• one converted to Judaism
• one converted away from Judaism.

I’ll post those answers in the evening run-down.
