Are Ben and Jerry Jewish?

Ben and Jerry

Well, to make a long story short, Ben and Jerry are Jewish!

Since Ben and Jerry's mother is Jewish, and in Judaism one's religion is based on one's mother's religion, then that makes them also Jewish. Their father is Jewish too.

Ben and Jerry (who's full birth name is Ben Cohen and Jerry Greenfield) were born on March 18, 1951 (Ben) and March 14, 1951 (Jerry) in Brooklyn, New York.

They are the co-founders of the ice cream company Ben & Jerry's, a premium ice cream brand, founded in 1978 in Burlington, Vermont, which is today a division of the Anglo-Dutch Unilever conglomerate.
