My grandmother survived the Holocaust, currently I live in the American south. I value my heritage more than a shared religion; however I do wonder. Being a blood jew myself, if my children came from a gentile mother would they not be Jews Anymore? I’m a Jewish man who was raised mostly Christian but I’m rediscovering my roots, so is my blessing allowed to be patrilineal or does it solely depend on the mother? This question is probably dumb but it’s bothered me for some time, does their father being a Jew matter in G_d’s eyes ?
