Was Marty Feldman Jewish?

Marty Feldman

Well, to make a long story short, Marty Feldman was Jewish!

Since Marty Feldman'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.

Marty Feldman (whose full birth name was Martin Alan Feldman) was born on 8 July 1934 in London, England. Marty Feldman passed away on 2 December 1982 (aged 48).

Feldman came from a Jewish immigrant family from Kiev, Ukraine.

He was known for his prominent, misaligned eyes. In 1974, he appeared as Igor in Mel Brooks' Young Frankenstein for which he received the first Saturn Award for Best Supporting Actor.
