Fans of Harry Potter can now rejoice. J.K. Rowling has finally announced that the series of books also has Jews hidden inside it. When the author was asked on twitter if there would ever be Jews in her series, she answered, “Anthony Goldstein, Ravenclaw, is Jewish.”

She then proceeded to tell her followers: “To everyone asking whether their religion/belief/non-belief system is represented at Hogwarts: the only people I never imagined there are Wiccans.”

People are asking who Goldstein is. Goldstein ate his holiday’s sufganiyot far away from the center of the plot layout, despite the fact that he was a member of Dumbledore’s Army. He is one of the six members of Dumbledore’s Army that protects Harry from Draco Malfoy. According to the Daily Mail, he also took part in the Battle of Hogwarts.
