Hi,

With regards to evidence of one’s Halachic Jewish status, one would in normal circumstances produce one’s parents’ Ketubah, but this was as the previous replies suggest not always available.

It was for this reason that the Marriage Authorisation has a space for certificate. This was these pace where the Chief Rabbi’s Office recorded what information or documentation it took as evidence of someone’s Jewish status. On occasions this was based on oral evidence from other members of the family.

Kind regards,

Richard Gilbert
