    The King Of Hanukkah... There is no surprise Adam Sandler is Jewish, but we could not leave him out! "Adam went to Hebrew school, and only four years after his bar mitzvah, he began doing stand-up comedy. He ended up hosting an MTV game show and showing up on The Cosby Show."

    Oliver "really got into" celebrating Rosh Hashanah with his late grandmother, he told Jew Review. When they asked Oliver what it was like for a nice Jewish boy like him to star in a movie about Christmas, he laughed and said, "I have a lot of guilt!" I wonder how much Hanukkah "Gelt" made it all better?
