I read somewhere this guy pretended to be jewish so he could marry his jewish girlfriend (lol) – i’m not sure if this story was true at all but i just have a few questions
1) how does the rabbi know if a person within a couple isn’t a jew and the other person is? i assume this is because the couple will express their desire to get married even though the other isn’t a jew?
2) do you have to confirm your jewish status in order for a rabbi to officiate / to have a jewish wedding? if so how?
