Was Marc Chagall Jewish?

Marc Chagall

Well, to make a long story short, Marc Chagall was Jewish!

Since Marc Chagall'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 him Jewish. His father was Jewish too.

Marc Chagall (whose full birth name was Moishe Shagal) was born on 6 July 1887 in Liozna, near Vitebsk, Russian Empire. Marc Chagall passed away on 28 March 1985 (aged 97).

Marc Chagall was a French artist whose work was generally based on emotional association rather than traditional pictorial fundamentals.
