Exactly what the title says. I’m Christian, but I’m writing a story where the main character is Jewish. I did a ton of research to make sure I got everything right, and then I wondered, “Aidan (The character) wasn’t born a Jew. Can he still be Jewish?”. The character isn’t from Israel or any continent on the map, he’s from a made up country where the majority of made up people follow the Torah. I’m so confused, because I didn’t really get any definite answers.
Do you have to be born a Jew to be Jewish?
