    Jewish by birth only.

    My mother was jewish.......my father was, well dont know as I never knew who he was. I was a "mistake" and ih boy that was bad 50 odd years ago when your mother came from quite a strict jewish home. I was fostered out till i was 6 due to the fact her sister wouldnt allow me in the home.Anyway what I want to say is this. I believe in God but no matter what way Ive gone in my life Ive come to realise that being Jewish by birth means to me that theres something inside me that will always be Jewish no matter what road I have been on in my years and what lays ahead.

    Re: Jewish by birth only.

    My meagre understanding of Judaism tells me that while the conventional view is that you're Jewish if your mother was Jewish there are some schools of thought that disagree with that. And of course there are different views on conversion as well. In the long run none of that matters. What does matter is exactly what you've pointed out, it's how you feel inside that matters and that's that.

    Isn't it amazing how a typo can be so appropriate?

    Speaking as a goy, I don't find the term offensive, just wanted to make that clear.

    My paternal grandmother was Jewish but for some reason it wasn't spoken about

    Hello Chris. I say embrace it with all that you are. It is a part of you that does not deserve to be denied.

    Groucho Marx tried to join a men's athletic club in the 1940s, but he was refused a membership because he was Jewish.

    He then asked them if his son could join, and wade in the swimming pool up to his waist, as he was only half Jewish.
