Is Woody Allen Jewish?

Woody Allen

Well, to make a long story short, Woody Allen is Jewish!

Since Woody Allen'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.

Woody Allen (whose full birth name is Allen Stewart Konigsberg) was born on December 1, 1935 in The Bronx, New York, U.S..

Allen has been nominated 23 times and won four Academy Awards: three for Best Original Screenplay and one for Best Director for Annie Hall (1978).
