What religion is Seth Green?

Green was raised Jewish and had a Bar Mitzvah ceremony. His full name is Seth Benjamin Gesshel Green, but he legally changed it to Seth Benjamin Green, dropping Gesshel. However, Green has since become an atheist, saying, “God, to me, is pretty much an idea. God, to me, is pretty much a myth created over time to deny the idea that we're all responsible for our own actions.”
