Good list, but I'd say Billy Joel, Neil Diamond, Mama Cass Elliot, Neil Sedaka, Marc Bolan (real name Marc Feld!), Marc Knopfler, Graham Gouldman, Kevin Godley and Lol Creme of 10cc, Barbra Streisand, Frankie Vaughan, Mick Hucknall, Elkie Brooks, Amy Winehouse, Helen Shapiro, Irving Berlin and Rodgers and Hammerstein also deserve to be on that list. If having a Jewish mother counts, then surprisingly, George Michael can also go on the list...I don't know if being a follower of Kaballah, which is a Jewish form of mysticism counts, but Madonna could be a tenuous addition...

thanks...completely forgot about a bunch of these...

Bob Dylan should be amended to say (raised): he no longer practices judaism, and has not since the 80's i believe, or earlier.

fair enough

If you care about spelling, its Sammy Davis, Jr. not Sammy David, Jr.

Since when has Jeff Beck been known to be Jewish?

Just to add a few more names: Jay Kay- Jamiroquai (Jewish mother), Pink (Jewish mother), Adam Duritz -Counting Crow, Beastie Boys, and Adam Levine- Maroon 5 (Jewish father)
