@Anonymous "So I come from Ashkenazi ancestry, but my great, great grandma converted to Mormonism when she married my great, great grandpa. My family isn't Mormon - my dad is non practicing Catholic who also has Jewish ancestry. I've been thinking about converting for the past few years. I live in Utah, though, and the nearest synagogue is 40 miles to the south. What do you think I should do?"

follow your heart! if you feel jewish and you’re sure you want to practise, then look into converting.

keep in mind that you don’t have to “officially convert” to connect with your roots! you can practise without converting, too!

@angeli-becerra "Actually, even if there is only the padre who is jewish and the mom isnt jewish, the child stay jewish. Its recently that some rav declared this law which says "is jew only the one who was born from a jewish mom'', it is very recent. Before that stupid new law, every child with jewish blood was considered as jewish and that's how it should be today. Who do the Real Law brother ? The men or God ?... Shalom :)"

@Anonymous "Can you not include Mishling/half Jews? Full Jews only please?"

What does half Jew even mean though. You either consider yourself jewish or you, as rules of the religion go, you’re jewish as long as your mom is jewish so then it doesn’t matter what padre is

@macondobound "i'd love to see more ladies that are not conventionally "hot" on this site, whatever that means. i mean specifically women who have made their way in a world that is generally inhospitable to non-conventionally-attractive ladies."

Ok sure send us any recommendations
