Is Henry Winkler Jewish?

Henry Winkler

Well, to make a long story short, Henry Winkler is Jewish!

Since Henry Winkler'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 him Jewish. His father is Jewish too.

Henry Winkler (whose full birth name is Henry Franklin Winkler) was born on October 30, 1945 in Manhattan, New York City, New York, U.S..

Winkler is best known for his role as Fonzie in the 1970s American sitcom Happy Days. ''The Fonz'', a leather-clad greaser and auto mechanic, started out as a minor character at the show's beginning, but had achieved top billing by the time the show ended.
