Profile: Ben & Jerry

Other Jews in the world of ice cream include the creators of Haagen Dahz (Polish Jews Reuben and Rose Mattus). Burt Baskin probably wasn't Jewish, but Irv Robbins may very well have been (the Intertubes are remarkably coy on the subject). Otherwise, nada. Breyer was not. Dreyers (aka, Edy's here in this neck of the woods) doesn't appear to be either. Is there anyone else I'm missing?

Also, for those who like minutiae, today is the second day in a row I used the word milieu in a profile. It actually bothers the HELL out of me, but I'm also not going to change it which means I'm basically being passive aggressive with myself. Good times.
