Jewish men dating non jewish woman
My brother has never dated a jewish woman, but would not ever consider marrying a non-jew.Lucky for him my family is totally cool with conversion (not all families are).Conversion hasn't been discussed at this point, although I would certainly entertain the idea if we were to get that serious.For the Jewish LS folks out there..you please advise me what it is that is generally told to a Jewish guy dating a non-Jewish girl that makes him decide to stop dating her?My mother's latest is where will I be buried - because she cannot even fathom the concept of an interfaith cemetary!ROFL It really all depends on how religious this guy is, how religious his family is - and how much of an influence his family has on him.In Judaism the religion of the child is that of the mother - so unless she is jewish the child must be converted to be jewish too.This is THE biggest reason jewish families are opposed to intermarriage, but I assure you they come up with plenty more.
Every race and religion has good people and bad people (sorta like the witches in the wizard of oz ). I graduated yeshiva (jewish paraochial school) after 13 years, was raised orthodox, etc.I've posted about this in the dating thread a while back..I never really got my answers... I'm concerned that inevitably, because I am not Jewish, that I will be shut out of his life and our relationship will end.He has said that while he and his parents would prefer that he eventually marry a Jewish girl that it is far more important that the girl he marries is a genuinely wonderful person.It depends on how religious he is and how much he cares about what his parents say. Wow I just wrote this whole long response and it disappeared on me! Firstly a somewhat derogatory term for a non jewish female is Shiksa, for a man it is Shaygitz.Their literal meaning is not positive, but they are used in everyday speech and have really lost their edge - depending on context of course.
