Joseph Gordon-Levitt

Well, to make a long story short, Joseph Gordon-Levitt is Jewish!

Since Joseph Gordon-Levitt'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.

Joseph Gordon-Levitt (whose full birth name is Joseph Leonard Gordon-Levitt) was born on February 17, 1981 in Los Angeles, California, U.S..

As a child star, he appeared in the films A River Runs Through It (1992), Angels in the Outfield (1994), Beethoven, and 10 Things I Hate About You (1999), and as Tommy Solomon in the TV series 3rd Rock from the Sun (1996–2001).
