The Lehman family was a prominent family of Jewish-German-American businesspeople who founded the financial firm Lehman Brothers. Some were also involved in American politics. The family traces back to Abraham Lehmann, a cattle merchant in Rimpar, Bavaria, who changed his Yiddish surname Löw (Loeb) to the German Lehmann.

Some of the family members include:
