Question

My two daughters are partial Jewish since intermarriage, one of my daughters got a DNA test and it came back around 25 percent European Jewish, which I assume is the same for my other daughter. How should I approach this?

Answer

To the Questioner, 

Genetic testing does not change Jewish Law in regard to determining one's Judaism, and only one who is born of a Jewish Mother is considered Jewish from birth. 

One who lacks such Jewish status yet desires to become Jewish, should approach The Orthodox Jewish Bet Din in his/her area for guidance as to how to do so. 

With blessings,
