    Shatner is Jewish, trust me people
    (Actually, I remember hearing that Checkov was Jewish too)

    From Jewhoo:

    William Shatner - Well, Shatner has been in several series and in some non-Trek roles, but he is and always will be Captain James T. Kirk of the starship Enterprise. Shatner was born (1931) and raised in Montreal, Canada and his parents wanted him to go into their garment business (You see, even "Captain Kirk", like a lot of Jewish young people, had to resist the easy temptation to go into the family business. Rather, he plunged into the potential black hole of the acting profession.) Shatner was once quoted as saying that, "we were all Jewish on Star Trek, except for Roddenberry, we wouldn't let him in." [Shatner was, of course, joking and exaggerating. However, it is true, Star Trek creator Gene Roddenberry was not Jewish.] Shatner always is very open and actually sometimes quite funny about being Jewish. One of our favorite moments came years ago when Shatner appeared on Howard Stern's show. It wasn't quite as well known then that Shatner was Jewish. Shatner said he was Jewish. Stern was astounded and would not believe him for quite a while. He asked Shatner, "What, what, your father is Jewish?" Shatner said, "Yes, and so is my mother." Obviously, there are not that many leading action stars who are Jewish and the fact that Shatner is Jewish seems to come as a surprise to both Jews and non-Jews, alike. A frequent correspondent, who lives in the area of the South where few Jews live, tells us that acquaintances can accept that Nimoy is Jewish, but Shatner 'blows them away'. He said that for years he carried a newspaper article in his wallet about Shatner being Jewish. It came up in conversations every few years and he got tired of people refusing to believe him. Update: Boldly going where few have gone before, Shatner confirms he is working on a film called the "Shiva Club". Shatner's wife drowned in 1999 and he says that the idea came to him while sitting "shiva" (i.e., the week long Jewish mourning period). If this film is a success, Shatner may open up the long neglected field of "shiva" humor. It is about a group of comedians who get the idea to audition for a Hollywood bigwig when he is sitting shiva for his dead wife. It's a comedy. Hope it does better than Priceline's stock has done recently. (There is no shortage of Shatner biographies on the web. However, we think many of our visitors will enjoy the following linked piece. It was written in 1995 and asks the question, "What if the crew of Star Trek were Jewish (as characters). It's very cute. (If you put the term "Trek" in the search engine you will pick up all the references to persons listed on the site somehow connected with one or another version of the program). Update July 2002: We decided to add a link to the fairly recently created 'official' Shatner site. It is more 'hands on' than many such sites. Shatner and his daughter contribute material on a fairly regular basis. Shatner is currently 'pushing' his video/DVD discussion with Leonard Nimoy called, "Mindmeld

    Hehe, sorry about that. I guess I may have ruined that series for you now?

    Not sure if his parents converted, nothing to suggest that.
    I think he's simply one of those Jews who have aquired a European phenotype. I mean Alicia Silverstone being Jewish has been a great blow to many red-blooded males here

    Personally, I never liked that show lol. As for nationalities Partrick Stewart is English, but also could be Scotch or Irish. Shatner = Jewish from Canada

    I find that to assume that anyone from Hollywood is jewish makes such dissapointments non-issues, but to hear that actors are NOT jewish becomes a thrill.

    Stewart is a Scottish surname, but it is originally French. Shatner sounds like a corruption of the Jewish name Abner. Yes it is disappointing that there were so many Jews on Trek.

    Yes
    The idea of multi-cultural and multi-racial society StarTrek "teaches" us ,
    provably comes from Jews, but despite it all , I like the series(all), and characters ,all of them.
