Re: Did my maternal grandmother convert to Judaism? #general


Yes, that's probably true.  On the other hand, if the child of a non-Jewish mother and a Jewish father is raised Jewish, then Reform considers them to be Jewish. That is the case for my three grandsons, all of whom have been Bar Mitzvahed.

"It is my understanding that in Reform the child of a gentile mother who is raised as a Christian, e.g. confirmed in the Catholic Church, still must undergo a Reform-style conversion ceremony.  The child raised as a Christian, to be exact."
