Isn’t Debbie Fields Jewish??

I found a reference she made to having a Jewish mother-in-law. So it may be that she comes from a mixed family, and as a result of becoming aware that America does indeed house a number of different religions that celebrate different holidays, she might see value in being all-inclusive with her products.

Doesn’t matter if she’s Jewish or agnostic;

NEW YORK (CNNfn) — Debbie Fields’ story hasn’t always been a pretty one.
She started the cookie business that bears her name even when her husband and parents frankly called it a stupid idea.
And after Mrs. Field’s Cookies became a ubiquitous success, she lost the company due to bad business decisions.
The business grew steadily, but Fields made the classic entrepreneurial mistake of overexpansion. When the recession hit in the late 1980s, the debt on the company became unbearable.
“The only thing I could do was swap my ownership for a reduction of debt. I didn’t have a choice,” she recalled. “It was like parting with my family, like giving [your baby] up for adoption.”
