Well, to make a long story short, George Gershwin was Jewish!
Since George Gershwin'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.
George Gershwin (whose full birth name was Jacob Gershowitz) was born on September 26, 1898 in Brooklyn, New York.
George Gershwin was an American composer and pianist. Among his best-known works are the orchestral compositions Rhapsody in Blue (1924) and An American in Paris (1928) as well as the opera Porgy and Bess (1935).
