Actress Gwyneth Paltrow raising her children as Jews

By Owen Weldon     Jul 21, 2011 in Entertainment
Gwyneth Paltrow recently said that she has plans to rise her two kids as Jews. Her two kids are Apple, 7, and Moses, who is 5.
Paltrow was raised as Jewish and Christian, she revealed last year. The actress said that it was nice growing up both as a Christian and a Jew, but she said also that she believes in spirituality and not religion. She said that religion is the reason for all the problems in the world, according to USmagazine.
Chris Martin, Paltrow’s husband and Coldplay’s frontman, has made no comments about his feelings about raising the kids as Jewish. Martin is actually a devout Christian, according to Christianpost.
However there are some genealogy experts who say that the actress and her children are not halachically Jewish, because Jewishness passes down the maternal line. Blythe Danner, Paltrow’s mother is not Jewish, but a Christian. Experts say that Paltrow and other people who want to show that they are proud of their Jewish background do so by observing Jewish traditions. Traditions such as Sabbath and creating a Kosher living environment are some examples. Celebrating Jewish holidays is also a good way to honor Jewish heritage.
