    Are there any frum Rothschilds? I know that quite a few have intermarried and many aren’t Jewish anymore but are there any frum extensions of the family?

    Forget about frum.

    According to my research, none are Jewish at this point.

    Rebetzin Yemima Mizrachi is a Rothschild, and IIRC her Frum uncle recently passed away in Washington Heights. (I don’t know if he has kids.) I was happy when I recently heard this tidbit in one of her shiurim, as I was also under the erroneous impression that there are no Frum Rothschild descendants.

    If you are talking about the Rothschild family from Paris who control the world’s weather (as reported here recently on YWN)) the answer is probably not. If you are talking about the Rothschild family from Willy and BP, absolutely all are frum yidden and big baalei tzadakah.

    Benjamin and Ariane de Rothschild of Switzerland are jewish and big supporters of Israel.

    Supporting Israel has nothing to do with practicing Torah Judaism.

    Gadolhadorah the De Rothschild family is very big and not only in France so my question was more about people who are related to the family rather than people who simply happen to have the same last name. Is the family in BP and Williamsburg know to be related to Mayer Amschel Rothschild?

    Benjamin de Rothschild’s mother was raised catholic.
    His father wasn’t frum. Although she converted to Judaism after she was pregnant with Benjamin, there’s no evidence that it was an orthodox conversion.

    Did Rebetzin Yemima Mizrachi specify which Rothschild family she was from? Because I can’t trace her father to the Mayer amschel

    Yitchokm: sorry I tried retracing the info I remembered and I was partially wrong.

    All she mentioned was about her uncle Rav Johnathon Rothschild’s from Washington Heights levaye in a Pre-Purim Shiur this year. After that I researched a bit, and some interviews /bios online mention her father being from Switzerland and a “scion of the famous Rothschild Family” without mentioning the words banking. That’s how the seeds were planted in my head…

    So I couldn’t vouch for it, although it was worded to imply that she was from THE ROTHSCHILD FAMILY.

    Bear in mind that there are thousands of Meir Anschel descendants, and not all are in the online wiki pages etc.

    Yitzchokm, there is no evidence that her conversion was not Orthodox.

    I’m pretty sure that Johnny Rothschild z”l from Washington Heights is not from that Rothschild family.

    Okay: so I guess the articles I read (Hidabroot comes to mind) about Reb. Yemima Mizrachi were misleading. Sigh…

    And neither are the Chasidic Rothschilds.

    Finally, Avi K: this is quoting Benjamin De Rosthschild from a 1990 Haaretz interview
    “And while we are on the subject of religion, let me tell you that the Jewish people made a very serious mistake by turning conversion into such a difficult process. Mathematically, if it goes on like this, the Jewish religion is liable to disappear. If someone wants to convert, let him convert. Don’t make the procedure so complicated that people despair. If you want to become a Muslim it is very simple; if you want to become a Jew it is almost impossible. My mother was converted by a rabbi in Paris but the Orthodox establishment does not recognize her conversion, so that technically I am not a Jew. If so, why do you ask for money from a goy? I think the religious establishment will have to change a great many things in this area, because it’s a matter of survival.”

    How very sad.

    Incidentally, Benjamin De Rothschild and his wife (she’s not Jewish and didn’t convert either) have four daughters. So nobody in that family is Jewish.

    If only they tried to uphold their ancestral Yiddishkeit at least as much as they try to maintain the Rothschild fortune and reputation of integrity in business.

    Mammele: What more do you expect from a goy? Even a goy named Rothschild.

    Joseph: Actually, I expected more from his father and grandparents.

    As I said, none of the Rothschilds today Jewish according to my research. Let alone, frum.
