Well, to make a long story short, Jack Benny was Jewish!

Since Jack Benny'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.

Jack Benny was an American comedian, vaudevillian, radio, television and film actor
