Is Architect Frank Gehry Jewish?

Yes, architect Frank Gehry is a Jew and the grandson of a Talmudic scholar.

Gehry was born into a Polish-Jewish family in Toronto, Canada.

Barbara Isenberg says on HuffPost in her essay, "Travels with Frank Gehry" that, "Gehry's grandfather was a Talmudic scholar who taught him to be curious and ask questions, and the two of them would often talk about the Talmud when they were at the family hardware store fixing clocks or cutting glass."
