Chuck Todd is Jewish. The NBC news correspondent and journalist was born in Miami, Florida, the son of Lois Cheri (née Bernstein) and Stephen Randolph Todd. He is Jewish on his mother's side, and was raised in a Jewish home.
Todd resides in Arlington, Virginia, with his wife, Kristian Denny Todd, daughter Margaret, and son Harrison.
During President Obama and Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu's joint press conference in Jerusalem during Obama's March 2013 visit of the Jewish State, Chuck Todd asked several questions. That led to Obama joking with Chuck Todd that he was asking too many questions. Todd joked that Passover was approaching and he was entitled to ask four questions. Appearing later on the Today Show, Todd made several other Passover references asking Matt Lauer, "Why is this press conference different from all other press conferences?"
