Quick! How many members of KISS were born Jewish? It's a trick question.
Original founding members Paul Stanley (Stanley Harvey Eisen, born in Queens, New York) and Gene Simmons (Chaim Witz, born in Israel) are, but Peter Criss and Ace Frehley are not, Jews.
Later members Eric Singer (Eric Doyle Mensinger) and Bruce Kulick (real name!) are also Jewish.
HERE, Gene speaks about his mother surviving Nazi Germany.
For more information, I recommend the books "Kiss and Make-Up" (2001, Gene Simmons), "Kiss: Behind the Mask" (2008, Leaf/Sharp), "Kiss: I Wanna Rock and Roll All Night" (2009, Aileen Weintraub), and "Power Chord" (2012, Thomas Scott McKenzie, talks a bit about Bruce Kulick being Jewish).
And now, here are 3 live videos of an entirely Jewish KISS, Simmons/Stanley/Kulick/Singer:
