And don't forget the great JLevey, although his schnozz is not as big as mine, so he can't produce small livestock from it like I can.

Woody Allen does magic and is Jewish.

Also no ones mentioned Moses and Jesus. They too did magic (albeit a slightly different type)and were Jewish

Did someone miss the recently deceased, Herb Zarrow? This Italian American talked to him a month before his passing. I could have spent that month listening to his great stories about the card greats.

I'm sure any omission of Herb Zarrow was strictly unintentional. Herb was a very special fellow. I used to see him at collectors' conventions. His knowledge of magic was quite deep.

Paul Stone, Danny Orleans and many others. Glad this topic didn't get shut down this time...
