Prior to this period, the Bible recognized patrilineal descent, whereby one’s Jewish status was determined by one’s father.
In 1983, the organized Reform Jewish Movement adopted the principal of patrilineal descent. Reform Judaism considers a child of an interfaith couple to be Jewish if one parent is Jewish and the child is raised as a Jew and receives a Jewish education and celebrates appropriate life cycle events, such as receiving a Hebrew name and becoming bar or bat mitzvah.
And I always imagine, as a Jew, that Roman Catholics have it easy.
At least they have a fixed star, in the pope and the Vatican, to ground their arguments and measure the depths of their dissent. Let’s say you are committed to marrying within the faith, and at some point, against what feel like impossible odds, given our tiny numbers, you find a fellow Jew whom you wish to marry. One of you never wants to go to synagogue, while the other would never miss it on Rosh Hashana.
Jews and many Catholics, like the Irish and Italians, were not considered truly white, until one day we all were, more or less; they can have testy, passive-aggressive relationships with clerical authority; and they are both petrified that the whole shop is about to go out of business.*While we, as a nation, continue to profess belief in God at rates that are distinctly non-European, our specific denominational attachments continue to wane.
