Gerber has said she observes some Jewish holidays such as Passover and Yom Kippur.

In a 2018 interview, when asked about her relationship with Judaism (as her father is Jewish), and her level of religious observance or lack thereof, she said "Yeah, my dad is Jewish and my mom is Christian so we grew up doing both; we call it Christmas Chrismukah. I love learning about both of those sides of my life. We’d do Passover, Passover dinner and Yom Kippur. I love learning all of that, and learning the cooking".[64]
