I was approached by a woman with the following story:
“At age 52 I learned that my maternal grandmother was an orphan and was Jewish. As a baby she was placed in a Catholic household and reared as a Catholic. She reared my mother as a Catholic and my mother reared me as a Catholic.
The story generated the following questions: “What is my status according to Jewish law? What is the status of my children according to Jewish law?” She is genuinely curious. I look forward to your response. Thank you very much.
