I have a question I hope you can help me answer.
My mother is Jewish my father is Romanian Orthodox ( Greek Orthodox ). I have always identified and have personally been attracted to Judaism vs Christianity.
As a single guy I have searched for a partner of the Jewish faith.
My conundrum. I have been running into a large number of people who state that I’m “half-jewish”. I’m technically Jewish but not 100% genetically Jewish because my father wasn’t Jewish.
I was brought up understanding that my mother being Jewish, makes me 100% Jewish. While I’m not observant, I’ve spoken to Rabbi’s who confirm the same.
I was wondering what your thoughts on the subject ?
Victor Daniel ( my mother’s maiden name is Leibovic from her mother, Lowy from her father ).
PS. This question may be posted but I ask that my last name be left out of any posting.
If your mother is undoubtedly Jewish you are 100% Jewish not “half-jewish”, and therefore do not need any sort of conversion.
