Is Simon Cowell Jewish?

Simon Cowell

Well, to make a long story short, Simon Cowell is not Jewish!

Since Simon Cowell'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 him not Jewish. Though he is not Jewish, His father is Jewish , and by Reform Judaism and Reconstructionist Judaism, who accept both matrilineal (by mother) and patrilineal (by father) descent views, he is considered Jewish.

Simon Cowell (whose full birth name is Simon Phillip Cowell) was born on 7 October 1959 in Lambeth, London, England, UK.

He is known in the United Kingdom and United States for his role as a talent judge on TV shows such as Pop Idol, The X Factor, Britain's Got Talent and American Idol.
