Re: Why Did Jews Marry Christians? #general

Hi Linda!  Thanks for your reply.  To make sure I understand you, like the Conversos, are you suggesting the converstion was not an actuaol embrace of another religion--but make to appear so for social and political reasons?  I could understand that.  My underlying question is whether such a marriage to a Christian would, under Russian law, protect those assets from something--like taxation?  Czarist confiscation? Please let me know if you can further enlighten me.
