Well, to make a long story short, Merrick Garland is Jewish!
Since Merrick Garland'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 him Jewish. His father is Jewish too.
Merrick Garland (whose full birth name is Merrick Brian Garland) was born on November 13, 1952 in Chicago, Illinois.
Garland is currently serving as the 86th United States attorney general since March 2021. He served as a circuit judge of the United States Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia Circuit from 1997 to 2021.
