Is Gwyneth Paltrow planning to raise her children in the Jewish faith?
Since finding out her family comes from a long line of East European rabbis in the show Who Do You Think You Are?, the actress, who has children, Apple, 7, and Moses, 5, with husband Chris Martin, might change her approach to parenting.
The Daily Mail reports Paltrow was in London speaking in front of guests of Jewish charity the Community Security Trust when she talked about being inspired to teach her children more about the faith.
The British newspaper added the thoughts of a geneaology expert. He says since religion passes through the matriarchal line, Gwyneth and her children could not be considered true Jews because even though her father was Jewish, her mother Blythe Danner is a Christian.
He said, “Miss Paltrow may just want to follow traditions that she did as a child, like observing the Sabbath, keeping a kosher home and celebrating holidays.”
