Is Gwyneth Paltrow Jewish?

Gwyneth Paltrow is Jewish if you follow patrilineal descent. That is because her father Bruce Paltrow who was Jewish. Gwyneth Paltrow's mother, the actress Blythe Danner, is from a Christian background. Gwyneth Paltrow was raised with "both Jewish and Christian holidays". Her brother had a bar mitzvah ceremony, but she did not have a bat mitzvah ceremony.

At the age of 24, Paltrow was engaged to actor Brad Pitt, whom she dated from 1994 to 1997. She had an on-off three-year relationship with actor Ben Affleck from 1997 to late 2000. In 2002 Paltrow began dating Chris Martin of the British rock group Coldplay backstage three weeks after the death of her father, Bruce Paltrow. They married on December 5, 2003, in a ceremony at a hotel in Southern California. Paltrow and Martin have two children together, a daughter Apple Blythe Alison Martin and a son Moses Bruce Anthony Martin (her son's first name came from the song, "Moses", that her husband wrote for her before their wedding).

Gwyneth Paltrow converting to Judaism (her father's Jewish)

Gwyneth Paltrow's father came from a long line of influential Eastern European rabbis, and that inspired Paltrow to raise her daughter and son in a Jewish environment. She has said "if you could see how much food I make – I am the original Jewish mother".

In 2014, Paltrow announced that she and Martin had separated after ten years of marriage, describing the process as "conscious uncoupling". In August, 2014, Paltrow started dating Glee co-creator Brad Falchuk, who is Jewish. Falchuk is a television writer, director and producer who is the son of Hadassah national president Nancy Falchuk.

In September 2014, Gwyneth Paltrow revealed that she is formally converting to Judaism. "The actress is quietly converting after years of following Kabbalah, which originated in Judaism, and being friends with Michael Berg, co-director of the Kabbalah Centre," reported.

In 2011, she appeared on NBC’s “Who Do You Think You Are?,” which described how her family came from a long line of influential Eastern European rabbis. After appearing on the ancestry show, Paltrow had said she wants to raise her daughter, Apple, 10, and son, Moses, 8, in a Jewish environment, even though their father is Christian. She reportedly made the comment to guests at a London event that was hosted by Community Security Trust, a charity that represents Jewish interests.
