#TBT Did you know Marilyn Monroe was Jewish? She converted to Judaism in 1956 before marrying famous playwright Arthur Miller, who was of Polish Jewish descent. Though the two split before her death in 1962, Monroe maintained her Jewish identity. She even had her own Siddur (prayer book), which was published in 1922, and will be sold at an auction by J. Greenstein & Co. on November 12 in Cedarhurst, Long Island. Check out Marilyn, the siddur and her conversion certificate.
