Five legendary Jews who changed America

It's no secret that the United States is home to the world's largest Jewish community. As of 2020, there are about 5,5 million representatives of this nation. The United States has always warmly welcomed Jews and treated them loyally. As it turned out, not in vain. Some of the representatives of Semitic origin were able to qualitatively influence the development of America and the world as a whole. The channel “Jewish Things” talks about this on Yandex.Dzen.

Levi Strauss

The real name of the American is Loeb Strauss. He was born in Germany and moved to the United States at age 18. There he changed his name to a more American one.

Levi had a great talent as a traveling salesman. As soon as he learned that they had discovered a gold deposit in California, he immediately rushed there. His role was not in gold mining, but in the sale of haberdashery, in particular canvas for tents, in which, as a rule, seekers of jewelry lived.

Once a disgruntled customer approached Strauss's shop and immediately began complaining to the seller that his work uniform was torn quickly and there were not enough pockets. This led to the fact that Levy soon created pants from canvas fabric. They had comfortable rivets and many pockets.

Gradually, the invention took the form of familiar jeans. In the US alone, about 500 million of these pants are sold every year.

Joseph Pulitzer

We often hear the phrase "Pulitzer Prize" on the air. This award is presented for outstanding contributions to journalism, literature and music. The founder of the award is Joseph Pulitzer. It was he who created the "yellow press", filling his newspaper with loud scandals, rumors and confusing investigations. His publication has always been loved and read, and concepts are still used in journalism.

Joseph Michael Schenck

The real name of this person is Joseph Mikhailovich Sheinker. He was born on the territory of the Russian Empire, but together with his brother left to seek his fate in the United States. At first, the brothers ran amusement parks, on the territories of which new items were installed - cinemas.

Observing the special addiction of people to films, Schenck realized that this was the future. Thus, in the 1930s, Joseph became the head of the legendary 20th Century Fox, which made an indescribable contribution to the film industry in the United States and around the world.
