Everybody knows that Jews control Hollywood -  at least that's what the anti-Semites would like the world to believe. But there's no denying that in the fields of movies, music, TV, fashion and literature, Jews have excelled far beyond their proportion of the population.
Talent and the ability to use it for the greater good are not necessarily Jewish traits, but Jews have certainly contributed enormously in providing enjoyment and enrichment to the lives of people. More than a few - from Groucho Marx and Woody Allen, to Bob Dylan and Barbra Streisand, have broken new ground that has forged an uncharted path for all who followed.
The Jewish creators who are influencing the next generation of entertainers are a diverse lot, from the cutting edge comedy of Amy Schumer to the soulful prose of Jonathan Safran Foer.  Help us choose which Jewish entertainers are the most influential of 2016.
