Well, to make a long story short, Carl Icahn is Jewish!
Since Carl Icahn'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.
Carl Icahn (whose full birth name is Carl Celian Icahn) was born on February 16, 1936 in Brooklyn, New York City, New York.
Icahn is the founder and controlling shareholder of Icahn Enterprises, a public company and diversified conglomerate holding company based in New York City. Icahn takes large stakes in companies that he believes will appreciate via changes to corporate policy and he then pressures management to make changes that he believes will benefit shareholders.
