Alysia’s maternal grandparents were Arnold Davis and Seena R.

Regarding her religious upbringing, she has stated:

In my house growing up, the intellect was God. We were cultural Jews. We ate bagels and lox, matzah and kugel, but we rarely went to temple and but parents didn’t fast or keep Passover. Judaism was the way we stayed connected to family, an excuse to gather, which I loved. At 11 years old when everyone started talking bat mitzvahs and my parents started talking Hebrew School, they couldn’t argue when I said, “I have no desire to do this thing, its all about big parties, materialism, and monetary gifts”.
