My family history expert friend, Michael, tells me that I may have confused some info on Julia Louis-Dreyfus when we were discussing two different actresses of similar background. In summary: the American born paternal grandmother of Julia-Louis Dreyfus was the daughter of a possibly Jewish, Brazilian-born businessman and an almost certainly not Jewish, Mexico-born mother. This paternal grandmother, Dolores Neubauer, was married to two Jewish men (Julia’s grandfather, and a second Jewish husband from a famous Sephardi family). However, she may not have been Jewish “at all.” Therefore, Julia may have “just” one Jewish grandparent–her paternal grandfather. This may partially explain why she does not define herself as being Jewish or of interfaith background. Sorry for the error.
