Reform Judaism/How Jewish Am I?


Eli Hadar wrote at 2014-06-16 19:17:15
If a conversion is performed by a Reformed rabbi, it will not be considered valid by the Orthodox community and most Conservative ones. I highly recommend finding the highest common denominator - if you go through an Orthodox conversion, nobody will deny you're a Jew. If you go through a Reform conversion, only a Reform community will consider you a Jew. Should you then decide to marry a Conservative or an Orthodox person, you may face challenges.

I will answer questions about Judaism in general, Reform, Conservative and Orthodox as well. I will answer questions about converting to Judaism, and questions about why Jews do not believe in a risen messiah. I try to stay away from politics.
