The Second Most Jewish Cabinet

Ynetnews reports on the Jewish scene–in Chile:

The newly elected Chilean government is the most Jewish government in the world, with three Jewish ministers and one deputy minister serving in the cabinet, Israel’s leading newspaper Yedioth Ahronoth reported Tuesday.

Another report tabulates elected officials.

The country which has the largest number of Jewish elected officials is Britain, where 61 legislative posts are occupied by Jews: 7 Barons, 37 Lords and 17 MPs.

The United States ranks second with 37 Jewish lawmakers, 11 Senators and 26 Congressmen.

France and Ukraine are third with 15 Jewish members of parliament each.

UPDATE: I excerpted the first paragraph of the story, but should have quoted the headline and subhead, which follow.
