Is Nikki Reed Jewish?

Nikki Reed

Well, to make a long story short, Nikki Reed is not Jewish! (though she considers herself Jewish)

Since Nikki Reed's mother is not 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 not Jewish (though once again, she DOES consider herself to be Jewish). Though she is not Jewish, Her father is Jewish , and by Reform Judaism and Reconstructionist Judaism, who accept both matrilineal (by mother) and patrilineal (by father) descent views, she is considered Jewish.

Nikki Reed (whose full birth name is Nicole Houston Reed) was born on May 17, 1988 in West Los Angeles, California, U.S..

Reed was raised without religion and has identified as Jewish. She grew up around some Jewish practices, as her brother had a Bar Mitzvah. She became known in 2003, after the release of the film Thirteen in which she played a lead role and was credited as a co-writer of the screenplay. She has since appeared in several films, including Lords of Dogtown and Mini's First Time. She also portrayed vampire Rosalie Hale in The Twilight Saga (2008–2012).
