Jews in the News: Chelsea Clinton to marry a Jew

Chelsea Clinton got engaged to... a Jew, Marc Mezvinsky, the son of former congresspeople Edward Mezvinsky and Marjorie Margolies-Mezvinsky.

So... will Chelsea convert? Will Marc? Will Bill Clinton have Jewish grandchildren? Will we get a JONJ profile out of it? Time will tell...


  1. Your question about Bill Clinton having, potentially, Jewish grandchildren makes me wonder: the four grandchildren of John F. Kennedy have a Jewish father. Do any of them consider themselves Jews? What do the seers of JONJ think about that phenomenon?

  2. Well, it's hard to find information on Caroline's children's religion (her husband, Edwin Schlossberg, is Jewish), but considering the oldest one, Rose, was named after then-living Rose Kennedy, they are probably NOT Jewish... But hard to tell for sure.
