Ms Jones is not notable[edit]

I hate discussing image boxes, but you pick Ms Jones to represent American Jews, who is she compared to Sammy Davis Jr? I mean how central is her Jewishness? Because if it is about diversity Sammy is a better pick, if it is about religious rep then he is a convert, so he is ticking the diversity box. African, convert, American, and notability. --Inayity (talk) 06:45, 31 December 2014 (UTC)

Request for comment[edit]

Are Sergey Brin and Sam Harris notable and famous enough as American Jews so that they can stay in the gallery of the infobox? 182.185.59.70 (talk) 21:38, 23 April 2015 (UTC)

Please stop edit-warring over the infobox. — Malik Shabazz Talk/Stalk 21:44, 23 April 2015 (UTC)

Religions of American Jews[edit]

There are often edits of this section that say that the religion of American Jews include things like Atheism and Buddhism. The religion of a Jew is Judaism. Atheism is not a religion, and Jews may follow precepts of Judaism. Those that follow the idea that Jews are also an ethnic group, which, even though there are some academics that use this terminology, is abhorrent. If that is the case, then ethnic Jews can be of any religion. But, then, you are not a Jew. The two cannot be separated. Although I did not revert the recent changes, I agree with them. There is only one religion for American Jews: Judaism, just as there is only one religion for American Catholics or American Moslems.Sposer (talk) 13:57, 8 January 2016 (UTC)
