Raviv Ullman, also at one point known as Ricky Ullman, is an American actor and musician. He is known for playing the main role on the Disney Channel series Phil of the Future.

Raviv was born in Israel, to Jewish parents from the United States, and is fluent in Hebrew. Raviv’s maternal grandfather is an Orthodox Rabbi. Raviv’s ancestors were Jewish immigrants (from Poland, Russia, Austria, and Hungary). He was raised in Conservative and Orthodox Judaism.

Raviv’s paternal grandparents are Edward “Ed” Ullman and Mildred Schindelheim (the daughter of Louis Schindelheim and Rose Golub). Mildred was born in New York, to an Austrian Jewish father and a Polish Jewish mother.

Raviv’s maternal grandfather is Rabbi Joseph H. Ehrenkranz (the son of Rabbi Mordechai/Max Ehrenkranz and Leah Teicholz). Rabbi Joseph was born in New Jersey. Rabbi Max and Leah were Jewish immigrants from Poland. Rabbi Max was the son of Yoseph Yehuda Ehrenkranz.

Raviv’s maternal grandmother is Judith Bragin (the daughter of Isadore A. Bragin and Betty Manger). Judith was born in Connecticut. Isadore was born in Connecticut, the son of Russian Jewish parents, Wolfe Bragin and Theresa Neafach. Betty was born in Connecticut, the daughter of Yusseff/Joseph Manger and Maly “Minnie” Sandhaus, who were Austrian Jewish immigrants, from Putilla in Bukovina, and Stansvsty, respectively.

Raviv’s great-great-grandfather Yusseff was the son of Menasha Manger and Freyda. Raviv’s great-great-grandmother Maly was the daughter of Benjain/Benyomin Tzvi Halevi Sandhaus and Frieda/Freyda Teller, who were Hungarian Jews.

Raviv’s great-great-grandparents Yusseff and Maly were also the maternal grandparents of Senator Joe Lieberman of Connecticut, thus making Raviv Ullman and Senator Joe Lieberman first cousins, twice removed.

He looks like a young Sean Astin. Incidentally, he’s also Jewish.

There are many Ashkenazi Jews with the surname “Ullman”, for example Douglas Fairbanks’ father.
