Is Jack Black Jewish ?

Just in case you wonder: "Is Jack Black Jewish?", the truth is that Black is Jewish.  

To be more exact, American actor Jack Black (full name: Thomas Jacob "Jack" Black) was born in Santa Monica, California, the son of two satellite engineers, Judith, who worked on the Hubble Space Telescope, and Thomas William Black. His mother was born to a Jewish family, while his father converted to Judaism (Black attended Hebrew school and had a Bar Mitzvah). On The Tonight Show with Jay Leno, Jack Black stated his surname may have come from the occupational name Blacksmith. 

Black considers himself an atheist, but is still thinking of sending his children to a Jewish school.
