Jerry Greenfield (March 14, 1951)
Along with Ben Cohen, Jerry Greenfield founded Ben and Jerry's ice cream. I have no idea of their Jewish identity or practice, but I did hear once that during the air raids in Tel Aviv in the first Iraq War, when people were truly terrified and much damage was done, if you were caught in a Ben and Jerry's your ice cream was free.
