Are there restrictions on a Kohen marrying a converts daughter


Assuming that she was conceived after her father became a convert, (meaning that she herself is definitely not a convert), then the halacha is as follows. If both of her parents are converts then it would be an issue, but if her mother is not a convert then it is fine for her to marry a kohen. Note: even if both her parents are converts, don’t be rash to say that they cannot marry, and speak to a Rov who is proficient in Even Haezer.

  1. Thank you.
    Can you please address the scenario if only the Mother was a convert.

    • It is the same as if only the father is a convert, she can marry a kohen.

  2. Thank you!
