Is William Shatner Jewish?

William Shatner

Well, to make a long story short, William Shatner is Jewish!

Since William Shatner'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.

William Shatner was born on March 22, 1931 in Cote Saint-Luc, Montreal Quebec, Canada.

He gained worldwide fame and became a cultural icon for his portrayal of Captain James Tiberius Kirk, commander of the Federation starship USS Enterprise, in the science fiction television series Star Trek, from 1966 to 1969.
