Was Marilyn Monroe Jewish?

Marilyn Monroe

Well, to make a long story short, Marilyn Monroe was Jewish! she was not born Jewish, but later on converted to Judaism, which makes her Jewish.

Since Marilyn Monroe's mother was not Jewish, and in Judaism one's religion is based on one's mother's religion, then that makes her also not Jewish (though once again, she was converted to Judaism, which makes her Jewish) . Though she was Jewish, Her father was not Jewish...

Marilyn Monroe (who's full birth name was Norma Jeane Mortenson) was born on June 1, 1926 in Los Angeles, California.

She became a major sex symbol, starring in a number of commercially successful motion pictures during the 1950s and early 1960s.
