Birth Name: Joshua Michael Peck

Place of Birth: New York City, New York, U.S.

Date of Birth: November 10, 1986

Ethnicity: Ashkenazi Jewish

Josh Peck is an American actor, comedian, and YouTube personality. He is married to Paige O’Brien.

Josh was raised in the Jewish faith, and had a Bar Mitzvah ceremony.

Josh was raised by his single mother, who is Jewish (her surname is Peck). It is not publicly known who Josh’s biological father is.

Josh has said:

I did one of those DNA tests and the results were…….Jewish. I feel like I didn’t need a test for that.

This implies that Josh’s biological father is also Jewish.

Josh’s maternal grandfather was Jack Peckerman (the son of Itzhak/Isidore/Izzy Usher Peckerman and Dora/Dorothy). Jack was born in New York, to parents from Poland. Itzhak was the son of Usher Zeilik Peckerman, who was from Antnofka, Kiev.

Josh’s maternal grandmother was Mae Weinberger/Weinberg (the daughter of Naten/Nathan Weinberg and Yetta Rosha/Rosser). Mae was born in New Jersey. Naten was born in Kielce, Russia, the son of Isaac Weinberg and Rose. Yetta was born in Warsaw, Poland, the daughter of Morris Rosha/Rosser and Anna.
