Was Paul Newman Jewish?

Paul Newman

Well, to make a long story short, Paul Newman was not Jewish! (though he considered himself Jewish)

Since Paul Newman's mother was not Jewish, and in Judaism one's religion is based on one's mother's religion, then that makes him also not Jewish (though once again, he DID consider himself to be Jewish). Though he was not Jewish, His father was Jewish, which makes him in some views half Jewish...

Paul Newman (who's full birth name was Paul Leonard Newman) was born on January 26, 1925 in Shaker Heights, Ohio, US.

He won numerous awards, including an Academy Award for best actor for his performance in the 1986 Martin Scorsese film The Color of Money and eight other nominations, six Golden Globe Awards (including three honorary ones), a BAFTA Award, a Screen Actors Guild Award, a Cannes Film Festival Award, an Emmy Award, and many honorary awards.
