Jewish Law

Descendent of a ger to become an IDF officer

04.06.19

Question

Does the prohibition of a ger tzedek serving in a position of authority also extend to his children? (My housemate is a ger tzedek. Our son wants to be an officer in the IDF.)

Answer

To the Questioner, 

See Rambam Hilchot Melachim 1:4, that once a person is born of a Jewish mother, this restriction does not apply. 

With blessings,
