Is Chelsea Handler Jewish ?

Just in case you wonder if Chelsea Handler is Jewish, the truth is that Handler (full name: Chelsea Joy Handler) is Jewish.  

To take things from the very beginning, Chelsea Handler, now 38, was born in Livingston, New Jersey. The youngest of six children, she was raised in Reform Judaism by her Jewish dad, Seymour, and her Mormon mother, Rita. Her mother was German and came to the United States in 1958. Handler has revealed that while growing up, she felt like an outsider and told a reporter: "We lived in this nice Jewish neighborhood…Everyone had Mercedes and Jaguars, and I was going to school in a Pinto."

It has to be noted that Handler is very proud of her Jewishness as in almost every episode of her show "Chelsea Lately" she mentions that she is Jewish

Conclusion: Chelsea Handler is half Jewish and half Mormon, but was raised Jewish.
