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 Judaism one's religion is based on one's mother's religion, then that makes her also not Jewish (though once again, she DOES consider herself to be Jewish). Though she is not Jewish, Her father is Jewish, which makes her in some views half Jewish...

Chelsea Handler (who's 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.
