Gwyneth Paltrow Says She Wants To Raise Her Children In The Jewish FaithJoanna Mazewski
She once famously said that she doesn’t believe in religions, but now it looks like Gwyneth Paltrow has changed her mind as she says she would like to raise her two children, Apple and Moses, in the Jewish faith.
Gwyneth, who was raised in a Jewish and Christian household, is reconnecting with her spiritual beliefs again following an appearance on the hit NBC show, “Who Do You Think You Are?”
Through the program, Gwyneth learned that her family comes from a long line of influential rabbis from Eastern Europe.
Even though Gwyneth also studies Kabbalah (perhaps influenced by her friend, Madonna), she has said in the past that she doesn’t believe in keeping up with religious faiths.
“I don’t believe in religion,” she said last year. “I believe in spirituality. Religion is the cause of all the problems in the world.”
Even though Gwyneth is Jewish from her father’s side of the family, her mother, Blythe Danner is Christian, along with her husband, Coldplay rocker Chris Martin.
The actress might want to brush up on her religious studies, though. According to genealogy experts, Gwyneth cannot be considered a true Jew though as religion passes through the matriarchal line.
Maybe Gwyneth can help David Beckham in the spiritual department!
