Were The Marx Brothers Jewish?

The Marx Brothers

Well, to make a long story short, The Marx Brothers were Jewish!

Since The Marx Brothers'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 them Jewish. Their father was Jewish too.

The Marx Brothers were born on 1887 (Leonard, known as Chico), 1888 (Adolph, known as Harpo), 1890 (Julius Henry, known as Groucho), 1892 (Milton, known as Gummo) and 1901 (Herbert Manfred, known as Zeppo) in New York City.

The Marx Brothers are an immensely popular family act known for their stage and film performances from the early 1920s to the late '60s, including Animal Crackers, Duck Soup and A Night at the Opera.
