To all those who posted interesting Posts about who is a Jew etc.

I thoroughly enjoyed reading every single one of them and it just goes to show, that from time to time we can all hold a sensible discussion on the matter.

I have in my family from both my parents' side, relatives who "married out" as we put it.Some did it in the 50's 60's and some did it this millenium.All came from orthodox famillies, and had regular Jewish upbringing.Why they married out, only they can say, but I have to admit they were/are ostresized by a lot of friends and family too.

My boys are very very religeous Haredim in fact, the eldest got married last night 13th October and it was a wedding where men and women were seated separately and danced separately.My wife and I have been living with this situation for over 5 years now and it doesn't bother us.We keep a Kosher home and respect the boys wishes if they visit on a Shabbat, to keep the Shabbat [no TV etc] and this doesn't bother us either.As long as they dont start preaching as to what we should do ( and they tend to do that from time to time).

To the question "when is a Jew not a Jew" my answer is, "when he doesn't feel his Jewishness any more.

Very well put Corse.

Mazel Tov on the wedding, BTW. I hope they are very happy together.
