Well, to make a long story short, Bobby Fischer was Jewish!
Since Bobby Fischer's mother was Jewish, and in Judaism one's religion is based on one's mother's religion, then that makes him also Jewish. His father was Jewish too.
Bobby Fischer (whose full birth name was Robert James Fischer) was born on March 9, 1943 in Chicago, Illinois. Bobby Fischer passed away on January 17, 2008 (aged 64).
Fischer's mother was a US citizen, born in Switzerland; her parents were Polish Jews.
