Was Bob Marley Jewish???

Bob Marley was a very spiritual man and a renowned devotee of The Rastafari Movement.  So I was a bit surprised when I came across a few photos of Marley wearing Jewish jewelry.  First there is this photo of Marley smoking a joint with his jacket zipped down exposing a Jewish Chai necklace.

Then there is this out of focus photo of Marley wearing a “Star Of David” ring.

Which leads to the question, Was Bob Marley Jewish?

According to the website Jew or Not JewMarley is “Barely A Jew”.  Bob’s father Norval Sinclair Marley was the son of Ellen Broomfield, a white Syrian Jew.  They started out in the Middle East, made their way to England, and ended up in Jamaica thus making Robert Nesta Marley “Barely A Jew”.

Fact: Bob Marley’s Dad Was White
