Lauren Bacall

Well, to make a long story short, Lauren Bacall was Jewish!

Since Lauren Bacall'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 her Jewish. Her father was Jewish too.

Lauren Bacall (whose full birth name was Betty Joan Perske) was born on September 16, 1924 in The Bronx, New York.

Lauren Bacall is an Academy Award-nominated actress known for roles in films like The Big Sleep, How to Marry a Millionaire, The Fan, The Mirror Has Two Faces, Key Largo and Murder on the Orient Express. She is also known for her distinctive husky voice and sultry looks, making her one of the leading ladies in the film noir genre.
