I am involved in a relationship with a Catholic girl who I love spending time with.
Do you envision a life in which you are conscious of your Judaism, maintain some Jewish tradition, and/or raise your children as Jews?
In Israel, any Jewish person who dates a non-Jew is not only bucking serious social pressure to date within the community, but also heading toward direct collision with the state, which does not permit so-called mixed marriages.
Naturally, a person with as much money and power as Yair Netanyahu can easily circumvent the legal hurdles put in place to prevent miscegenation.
Only the word of certain rabbis is trusted, and the list of acceptable rabbis is very short.
If either the bride or groom is considered not to be Jewish enough, the rabbis do not allow the wedding to take place.
They are not religious so I don’t understand why they are so adamant about this.
