  • Discover all you can about your family from files. That's about the only thing you can do. That said, if you want to be practice Judaism officially, go through the process, learn and convert.

  • To @butterflyblue19 Historically the jewish people have been isolated giving them specific genetic markers. Up until very recent modern times jews did not marry outside their religion. Also my family (the jewish side that is) immigrated from Poland, but the shtetl (town) was often a part of Russia as border contastantly changed inthe area. It is now considered a part of Belarus.

  • Do you know your family's name? I'm Jewish and I live in Mexico and we're a small and close community.

  • Because when i breifly contacted my dad after foster care, he told me that Jesus was not God and that he was just a regular man. Also my family is from the area the Jews settled. I just want to know if there is a connection.
