What does halakah law say Avi Yaakov Kayman was questioning whether the child of a Jewish mother, an ethnic Jew, was a Jew or not. The halakah law says, all children of Jewish mothers are Jews - thus directs all observant Jews are NOT to dispute this. Apparently Avi, you are so focused, that one version of Jewishness should prevail, religious not ethnic nationality - that you cannot appreciate a point based on religious tradition itself, that religious Jews cannot debate in such ways about Jewishness. My point is that, the only way to equalise Jewish matriarchal and patriarachal status, is to have identity premised on the grandmother (this goes some way to recognising Law of return needs), so that Jewish fatherhood is recognised. Otherwise mixed marriages produce Jewish children only when the female married a non Jewish male. This is sexist discrimination. If halakah law gives up it?s sexist discrimination, it has only one place to go. The Jewish grandmother, giving her female and male children equal parental status when they marry partners.
