To Be Clear — Meghan Markle Isn’t Jewish

Dear Editor,

As an Observant Jew who has known and been a coworker and peer of Tom Markle, Ms. Markle’s father, since 1982, I can tell you neither Tom nor her mother are Jewish. She was raised Catholic and I am not sure she even practices any religion at this time. Being married to a Jew for a few years neither makes you Jewish nor Jewish by association. Please don’t reduce the credibility of your writers or your newspaper by perpetuating this myth. She is and has always been a very nice person and deserves nothing but the best!

Sincerely,

Mark Levin
