I was raised nominally Christian, but have always felt an inexplicable pull towards Judaism. I recently found out that my maternal grandmother's maternal grandmother was a Jew who converted to Catholicism. Halachically, am I already a Jew?Answer Question

I believe I should follow Jewish law.
how does your family feel about that? you know, the people you share a house with?
are you and your daughter prepared to never show your hair in public?
if you have male and female children are you going to teach them that once they reach puberty it is forbidden for them to have physical contact?
are you prepared to purchase a second refrigerator and set of dishes to keep kosher?
this is not something to be entered into lightly but rather an entire lifestyle change affecting not just you and your immediate family but also your parents and those who you interact with on a daily basis.
