Denied by his Jewish wife, Aline Kominsky, in Heeb Magazine.
You thought Robert was Jewish when you first met him.
I had read Robert’s work before I met him and I thought he was Jewish because he’s just so whiny. He’s such a kvetch. I grew up going to the Borscht Belt hotels in the Catskills and hearing famous Jewish comedians like Joey Bishop and Alan King and Jackie Mason;I was really familiar with that anecdotal, self-deprecating humor. So when I saw Robert’s comics, I thought, here is Jewish humor at its best. I assumed that Crumb was a name he made up for comics and his real name was Crumberg or something. When my grandparents met him, he wore a white shirt, a sports coat and a hat so they thought he was a rabbinical student. When we finally told them the truth, they were really disappointed. My grandmother tried to get him to convert for years. Robert seems to be somewhat of a Jewophile because I’m his second Jewish wife. He actually comes from a big, Minnesota farm family and they’re as white as can be. I think they came over on the Mayflower or something.

Is Richard Gere Jewish?
Lou Lumenick on April 8, 2007

[The only source for Gere being Jewish that my librarian could find] was this sentence in a 2005 article in The Vancouver Sun: "… some sources say Gere was born Jewish and raised Methodist before his right turn into Buddhism.'' Some sources? [One reader] scoured the Internet and found this in an interview Gere gave to The Cinema Source to promote Bee Season:
"My father was always really close to the Methodist Church and my mother was a Presbyterian,” Gere recalls. “We went to Methodist Churches growing up and there were certain rituals to be a Methodist. I remember the singing more than anything, the sense of joy and singing hymns in the atmosphere of people trying to engage that mysterious energy.”
That's good enough for me. [...]

What else would you expect from a long-time Mel Brooks collaborator? Sure, Cloris did play a obvious non-Jew in "Young Frankenstein" (Frau Blucher — neigh), but she must be Jewish, right?

Wrong. She was born and raised in the goy fields of Iowa. But why not let Cloris speak for herself? "I'm not Jewish but they cast me that way a lot of the time," she says.

Well, that explains that.

The elder Booth in every land was a sojourner, as all his fathers were. Of Hebrew descent, and by a line of actors, he united in himself that strong Jewish physiognomy which, in its nobler phases, makes all that is dark and beautiful, and the combined vagrancy of all men of genius and all men of the stage. Fitful, powerful, passionate, his life was a succession of vices and triumphs. He mastered the intricate characters of dramatic literature by intuition, rather than by study, and produced them with a vigor and vividness which almost passed the depicting of real life. -- from The Life, Crime, and Capture of John Wilkes Booth by George Alfred Townsend
