Marilyn Monroe Jewish

Just in case you wonder if the legendary Marilyn Monroe was Jewish, the truth is that Marilyn was Jewish.  

The world's biggest sex symbol signed up to be Jewish by choice.

To be more specific, Monroe and Arthur Miller wed in a Jewish ceremony before a small group of guests. Rabbi Robert E. Goldburg, a Reform rabbi at Congregation Mishkan Israel, presided over the ceremony. Their nuptials were celebrated at the home of Miller's literary agent, Kay Brown, in Westchester County, New York. Some 30 friends and relatives attended the hastily arranged party.

It has to be mentioned that Marilyn nominally baptised and raised as a Pentecostal Christian but before her 1956 conversion to Judaism, she laughingly rejected Jane Russell's conversion attempts during the 1953 filming of "Gentlemen Prefer Blondes", claiming: "Jane tried to convert me (to religion) and I tried to introduce her to Freud". 

We should keep in mind that Marilyn was not persuaded by Arthur Miller to convert to Judaism. In fact, Monroe converted to Judaism before marrying Miller.
