Group Description

Receive quick quotes from classic Torah books:
Mussar, Midrash, Halacha, Rishonim, etc

But who is a Jew?

Jewishness is inherited from the mother only, NOT the father.
In the Biblical Book of Ezra, chapter 10,
Ezra ejects all children born to non-Jewish mothers,
even though they all had Jewish fathers.

Ezra is never criticized for this by any prophet or classic Torah book.

The Talmud says 5 times that the child of a Jewish MOTHER is Jewish:
Yebamot 17A, Yebamot 23A, Yebamot 100B, Kidushin 68B, Sanhedrin 21A.

Reform and Conservative converts are NOT Jewish because their Rabbis:
accept heretical beliefs and publicly desecrate Shabbat (Rambam,
Hilchot Shabbat 30:15) and DO NOT follow correct conversion procedures.

Non-Jews DO NOT BECOME JEWS just because they were adopted by Jews; they must convert.

About converting to marry a Jew:

Tanna DeBei Eliyahu Raba, Chapter 29:
A person who converts to marry a Jew is comparable to a mule (chamore).

Minor Tractates of Talmud, Tractate Gerim, Chapter 1, Law 7:
Anyone who converts for the sake of [marrying] a Jewish woman,
or fear, or love [of money] is NOT a convert...
Anyone who is NOT converted from purely religious motives is NOT a convert.

Rambam, Hilchot Issurei Biah, chapter 14, paragraph 13:
Whoever converts because of worldly nonsense
[for example, to marry a RICH JEW] is NOT a righteous convert.

Yalkut Shimoni, Shemot, chapter 12, Remez 213:
When a man converts because he wants to marry a Jewish woman,
G_d says to him: You converted because of a nebelah [non-kosher carcass].

Yoreh Deah, Siman 268, Sif 12:
Potential converts must be investigated to find if they are converting to marry Jews.

Kitzur Shulchan Aruch, chapter 145/19:
A Gentile who sins with a Jewess and converts, he may not marry her.

Syrian Rabbis 1935 Decree:
Conversions done for marriage are “absolutely invalid and worthless."
