Was Ira Levin Jewish?

Ira Levin

Well, to make a long story short, Ira Levin was Jewish!

Since Ira Levin'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.

Ira Levin (whose full birth name was Ira Marvin Levin) was born on August 27, 1929 in New York City, New York.

His most noted works include the novels A Kiss Before Dying (1953), Rosemary's Baby (1967), The Stepford Wives (1972), and The Boys from Brazil (1976), as well as the play Deathtrap (1978).
