    Jorge Isaacs

    Jew Score:



    April 1, 1837 – April 17, 1895

    Jorge Isaacs is a pretty big deal in Colombia. His novel, "Maria", is considered a seminal work of Spanish-language literature. He fought in the Colombian Civil War, was a politician and an ambassador. He appeared on Colombian money. He possessed a fantastic mustache.

    If not for his father, Isaacs might have not been Colombian at all.

    Jorge's father George was a Jamaican Jew, who made his way to Colombia and converted to Christianity. George had to obtain a citizenship, so he paid Simon Bolivar for it.

    He paid for his citizenship in cows.

    If not for cows, Isaacs might have not been Colombian at all...

    Verdict: Barely a Jew.
