SHalom b'YHWH
To the members of the Beit Din. I am writing to ask what the Beit Din
determines a Jew to be, from birth. Please be specific. For example, do
you consider a Jew from birth to be a person whose mother was a Jew, or
do you consider a person whose father was a Jew to be one, or both? Do
you consider a person who had one grandparent on one side or both to be
Jewish, or must it be a maternal grandmother? Shalom, Kathryn

YHWH bless you and guard you. YHWH make His face to shine upon you and
show you favor. YHWH lift up His face upon you and give you shalom.
