Well, to make a long story short, Phoebe Cates is Jewish!
Since Phoebe Cates'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 her Jewish. Her father is Jewish too.
Phoebe Cates (whose full birth name is Phoebe Belle Cates) was born on July 16, 1963 in New York City, New York, U.S..
She is known for her roles in several teen films, most notably Fast Times at Ridgemont and Gremlins.
