The Egg Donor Might Not Have Been Jewish, but My Baby Is

Busy with the logistics of becoming a single mother by choice - injections, the timing of the retrieval and the pregnancy - whether my baby would be considered Jewish by my rabbi was an afterthought.

When I was 39 years old and still single, I decided to move forward with my “Plan B” to have a baby on my own as a single mother by choice. After finding a wonderful and generous sperm donor, I learned that I would also need an egg donor.
