Jews in the News: Andrew Koenig, RIP

Yes, Andrew Koenig was Jewish; his father, Walter Koenig (Chekov from "Star Trek") definitely is. So was his mother, Judy Levitt.

For those unfamiliar, Koening, who played Mike Seaver's (Kirk Cameron, DEFINITELY NOT A JEW) best friend Boner on "Growing Pains" went missing in Vancouver. His body was discovered yesterday, an apparent suicide.


  1. Never a good sign when your most memorable role is a character named Boner.

  2. His mom, Judy, was my drama coach when I was younger and we were family friends with the Koenig's. She is indeed Jewish. RIP Andrew :)
