Is Bernie Sanders Jewish?

Bernie Sanders

Well, to make a long story short, Bernie Sanders is Jewish!

Since Bernie Sanders's mother is Jewish, and in Orthodox Judaism and Conservative Judaism, those with a Jewish mother (or those who underwent a halakhic conversion) are considered Jewish, then that makes him Jewish. His father is Jewish too.

Bernie Sanders was born on September 8, 1941 in Brooklyn, New York.

Sanders was born into a working-class Jewish family.

He served as the junior United States senator from Vermont since 2007 and as U.S. Representative for the state from 1991 to 2007. He is the longest-serving independent in U.S. congressional history. Sanders unsuccessfully sought the Democratic Party nomination for president of the United States in 2016 and 2020, finishing in second place in both campaigns. Before his election to Congress, he was mayor of Burlington, Vermont.
