3)   A person’s status as a Jew is based on either being born of a Jewish mother [or conversion]. What you are referring to is a Jew’s belief system. One of the basic principles of Jewish belief is that the Torah we received at Sinai from Moshe Rabbeinu [Moses] will never be changed in the future by anyone. The Torah explicitly warns of false prophets arising and making claims contradictory to the Torah. So while a Jew will always remain a Jew, it is certainly forbidden for a Jew to believe in Jesus or Mohammed, this for a Jew is the most severe sin of heresy and idol worship. A Jew is in fact commanded to give up his life before he accepts the divinity of these people.
