Well, to make a long story short, Maggie Gyllenhaal is Jewish!
Since Maggie Gyllenhaal'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 not Jewish.
Maggie Gyllenhaal (whose full birth name is Margaret Ruth Gyllenhaal) was born on November 16, 1977 in New York City, New York, US.
She is an actress known for roles in small films and for her leading-lady role in The Dark Night. She appeared in the musical-drama, Crazy Heart (2009), for which she was nominated for an Academy Award for Best Supporting Actress.
