Is Tiffany Haddish Jewish?

Yes, she is!

According to Times of Israel, Tiffany didn't meet her dad until the age of 27, when he revealed to her that he was an Eritrean Jew. 

The source cites her in an interview saying: "I didn’t know anything about Judaism for a long time... as I got into that profession as an energy producer, I started learning more and more about the Torah. I could really relate to it. And when I met my father, it really resonated with me. I was like: This is what I am. I did my 23&Me, and it said the same thing. I [thought], well, I can’t deny this. I wanna claim it.”

They note that she has since begun learning Hebrew.
