?Secular Jewry must formulate for itself its own definition of who is a Jew, and it must not grant religious Jewry a monopoly on this definition. It is untenable that a person whose father is Jewish and who wants to be defined as a Jew should be rejected by us and required to undergo religious conversion. It is untenable that spouses who marry Jews and who see themselves as Jews are required to undergo religious conversion, even if they themselves are agnostic, for example.?Converge Law of Return (includes those with Jewish grandfathers) status with traditional identity around birth to a Jewish mother, this around having a Jewish grandmother (those so being, including Jewish fathers). This is in the interest of both Israel and the wider Jewish community where inter-marriages are occuring amongst secular Jews.?It is inconceivable that the global Jewish organization should continue to be the Jewish Agency for Israel, that the World Zionist Organization should continue to act as though the Jewish state had not yet been established?Maybe each nation should have a register of Jews and identify their prime affiliation to religious and secular groups - each of which are connected to an international organisation (voting status dependent on a qualifying level and number of members).
