Is Billy Joel Jewish?

Billy Joel

Well, to make a long story short, Billy Joel is Jewish!

Since Billy Joel'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.

Billy Joel (whose full birth name is William Martin Joel) was born on May 9, 1949 in The Bronx, New York City, New York, United States.

Since releasing his first hit song, ''Piano Man'' in 1973, Joel has become the sixth-best-selling recording artist and the third-best-selling solo artist in the United States, with 33 Top 40 hits in the United States. He is also a six-time Grammy Award winner who has been nominated for 23 Grammy Awards. He has sold over 150 million records worldwide.
