Middleton, Wisconsin-based American Girl will add a new member to its ethnic doll collection on May 31. Rebecca Rubin is American Girl's first Jewish character doll and will be unveiled in time for Manhattan's Israel Day parade.

Rebecca Rubin's bio says that she is a 9-year-old who moved to the Lower East Side of Manhattan in 1914 with her Russian-Jewish parents, siblings and her gran-bubbie.

Rebecca Rubin has long reddish brown hair, but unlike her Hispanic peer Josefina or Addy, the African-American doll, she doesn’t have distinct ethnic features. You can, however, buy her some unique accessories like a sideboard with a challah resting on top.
