  1. A Jew is any person whose mother was a Jew or any person who has gone through the formal process of conversion to Judaism.

    It is important to note that being a Jew has nothing to do with what you believe or what you do. A person born to non-Jewish parents who has not undergone the formal process of conversion but who believes everything that Orthodox Jews believe and observes every law and custom of Judaism is still a non-Jew, even in the eyes of the most liberal movements of Judaism, and a person born to a Jewish mother who is an atheist and never practices the Jewish religion is still a Jew, even in the eyes of the ultra-Orthodox. In this sense, Judaism is more like a nationality than like other religions, and being Jewish is like a citizenship. See What Is Judaism?

    This has been established since the earliest days of Judaism. In the Torah, you will see many references to “the strangers who dwell among you” or “righteous proselytes” or “righteous strangers.” These are various classifications of non-Jews who lived among Jews, adopting some or all of the beliefs and practices of Judaism without going through the formal process of conversion and becoming Jews. Once a person has converted to Judaism, he is not referred to by any special term; he is as much a Jew as anyone born Jewish.

  2. I don’t think you could be confused by such a simple issue. Jewish can man your cultural group or Jewish can mean your religion. You are a Jew who was raised in the Catholic religion. Same as an Italian who is Catholic.

  3. You are an ethnical jew (semite) if you have DNA common to ethnical jews (semites).

    Also the jewish nose is a pure myth. I know a lot of Israelis (of semite origin) without that nose.

    Semite is the race, Judaism is a religion.

  4. The one who brings you up is better than the one who gives you birth.
    You should choose catholic in this case…
    If it’s not that simple for you, then take your time, understand the differences b/w Christianity and Judaism and then make your mind…
    I still prefer the catholic.

  5. Ethnically you are a jew, and you should embrace your cultural heritage, but from a theological point of view you are just as Catholic as you were before you found out. I’m an atheist and no expert on religion, but I doubt God would care about race, in fact you’re the same race as Jesus.

  6. Explore your Jewish roots a bit. It could be fun and open new doors for you. It would also be an act of gratitude towards your birth parents.

  7. Cute! Religion is not genetic sweety. Religion is in your heart! If you feel like you’re a Christian and you believe in Jesus and God, then you’re a Christian.

  8. Do you believe in, in jesus Christ as your savior and messiah?
    If you do you are not Jewish by religion.
    But since you were born a jew, you would not need to go through a very long conversion process.
    But that is your choice, you are in a sense still jewish even though you do not follow the laws pf the torah. Look up your birth religion you never know what you might believe.

    Edit; if you consider yourself Christian no you are not a jew.
