Is Lea Michele Jewish?

Lea Michele

Well, to make a long story short, Lea Michele is not Jewish!

Since Lea Michele's mother is not 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 not Jewish. Though she is not Jewish, Her father is Jewish , and by Reform Judaism and Reconstructionist Judaism, who accept both matrilineal (by mother) and patrilineal (by father) descent views, she is considered Jewish.

Lea Michele (whose full birth name is Lea Michele Sarfati) was born on August 29, 1986 in The Bronx, New York City.

She is best known for her performance as Rachel Berry on the Fox television series Glee.
