WHO IS A JEW: My definition is similar to Benjamin Ze’ev Herzl's: Being a Jew is being a member of a nation: The Jewish People ("Aam Yisrael"). Some Jews are religious (and attend temple) others are secular (and do not believe in God). You are a Jew if your parents were Jewish (Halakha Law requires a Jewish mother). Your temple-attending practices are not about to determine your Jewish-ness. If your beliefs were hijacked by some missionary Christians and you find yourself attending Church – you may lack a Character and a National Pride but you are still an [errant] Jew! You cannot choose your biological parents. If you were born a Jew you are stuck with it for life (When the Nazis picked Jewish men from the street to fill the “transports” to Auschwitz they pulled-down their pants to see…, they did not care about their religious beliefs). Converting to become a Jew is possible (Remember Ruth Hamoavia), though it makes sense only in the context of marrying a Jew.
