  •  A Rabbi told me (6+ / 0-)

    when I was thinking of converting, that your soul is what makes you Jewish. I'm black, and was in love with an Jewish guy and we thought we were headed towards marriage. He was very ambivalent and secular about Judaism...definitely more cultural than religious for him, but I loved his family, the celebrations, going to services etc.

    The Rabbi told me some Jews might not accept me as fully Jewish because I was black; others because I was a convert but that if I was Jewish in my soul, I was Jewish.
