Was Danny Kaye Jewish?

Danny Kaye

Well, to make a long story short, Danny Kaye was Jewish!

Since Danny Kaye's mother was 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 was Jewish too.

Danny Kaye (whose full birth name was David Daniel Kaminsky) was born on January 18, 1911 in the United States. Danny Kaye passed away on March 3, 1987 (aged 76).

Danny Kaye was an actor, singer, dancer, and comedian. Kaye starred in 17 movies, notably The Kid from Brooklyn (1946), The Secret Life of Walter Mitty (1947), The Inspector General (1949), Hans Christian Andersen (1952), White Christmas (1954), and The Court Jester (1956).
