Is Chelsea Handler Jewish?

Chelsea Handler

Well, to make a long story short, Chelsea Handler is not Jewish! (though she considers herself Jewish)

Since Chelsea Handler's mother is not 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 her not Jewish (though once again, she DOES consider herself to be Jewish). Though she is not Jewish, Her father is Jewish , and by Reform Judaism and Reconstructionist Judaism, who accept both matrilineal (by mother) and patrilineal (by father) descent views, she is considered Jewish.

Chelsea Handler (whose full birth name is Chelsea Joy Handler) was born on February 25, 1975 in Livingston, New Jersey U.S..

Handler was raised in Reform Judaism.

She hosts a late-night talk show called Chelsea Lately, on E! Entertainment Television.
