Probably. She WAS circumcised, afterall.

She and Jane Seymour were neck-and-neck for the role of Natalie in "War and Remembrance" until an embarrassing screen test in which Robert Mitchum mistook Bea for a battleship and manfully mounted her poop deck.

She did a Woody Allen play at Lincoln Center in 1981 called THE FLOATING LIGHT BULB, about a family in Canarsie. I don't know the play, but I would assume the family was Jewish.
