Well, to make a long story short, Joan Rivers is Jewish!
Since Joan Rivers'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.
Joan Rivers (whose full birth name is Joan Alexandra Molinsky) was born on June 8, 1933 in Brooklyn, New York.
Comedian Joan Rivers created a Grammy nominated comedy album, launched a syndicated daytime talk show, and went on to win a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame.
