Patinkin grew up in a middle-class family, descended from Russian- and Polish- Jews, and was raised in Conservative Judaism. Patinkin has been involved in a variety of Jewish causes and cultural activities. He sings in Yiddish, often in concert, and on his album Mamaloshen.

Patinkin contributed to the children's book "Dewey Doo-it Helps Owlie Fly Again: A Musical Storybook," inspired by Christopher Reeve prior to Christopher and Dana Reeve's deaths.
