Half Jewish? Kind of confused...?

So, my dad is jewish, and my mom is from Italy.

Since I'm technically not "jewish", whats my other half of identity, would it be Russian because my great grandparents were from Russia? or would it just be simply American because he is an American and my mom isn't.

    Good luck with that, I think We are all confused...We are Spanish/Saudi with Jew/Spanish and the other side is Spanish/French with Spanish/Aztec. But i decided to go take my grandma Last name, which i'm happy because I identify myself with that Nationality best.

    Your own self (personality, etc) is your identity; if someone asks about your nationality you're American; all of the other things are your ethnicity and heritage.
