Profile: Orlando Bloom

"Bloom" is often a Jewish last name, but this part-time pirate and elf never struck me as even remotely Jewish. For a good reason, it turns out.

Thanks to reader Bob from Illinois for the suggestion.


  1. THIS is why the halakha put emphasis on matrilineality.

  2. He claimes, his father is not his father (no DNA-
    analyse), and that's why he is not jewish? When
    smb denies, his weight is 150 kg., we beleave, he
    is slim?
