Looks like showbiz mogul Simon Cowell can trace his roots back as a member of the tribe.

The American Idol to Britainís Got Talent judge has paternal grandparents who were married at an East London synagogue. His father Eric, was born to Joseph Cowell and Esther Malinsky.  Joseph and Esther got married in 1915 at West Ham Synagogue.

While Esther came from Poland with her family emigrating around 1890, Joseph was also born in the East End to Joseph Allerton Cowell and Nancy Levy.
