Bob Dylan

Well, to make a long story short, Bob Dylan is Jewish!

Since Bob Dylan's mother is Jewish, and in Judaism one's religion is based on one's mother's religion, then that makes him also Jewish. His father is Jewish too.

Bob Dylan (who's full birth name is Robert Allen Zimmerman) was born on May 24, 1941 in Duluth, Minnesota, U.S..

Dylan was born Jewish, later converted to Christianity, then he went back to Judaism. He has been an influential figure in popular music and culture for more than five decades. Much of his most celebrated work dates from the 1960s, when he was an informal chronicler and a seemingly reluctant figurehead of social unrest. A number of Dylan's early songs, such as "Blowin' in the Wind" and "The Times They Are a-Changin'", became anthems for the US civil rights and anti-war movements.
