Well, to make a long story short, Ellen Barkin is Jewish!
Since Ellen Barkin'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 her Jewish. Her father is Jewish too.
Ellen Barkin (whose full birth name is Ellen Rona Barkin) was born on April 16, 1954 in New York City, New York.
Barkin rose to fame with a role in the film ‘Diner’ in 1982. She became one of the most recognizable figures in Hollywood with several leading roles. Barkin is best known for her “tough persona”. She played a memorable role in the 1987 film The Big Easy. Her role in The Normal Heart earned her a Tony Award.
