Reasons to Prohibit Intermarriage
I am writing to inquire if Orthodox Jewish law or precedent supports my parent’s position. Here they are. 1. Their last will and testament states to marry a non Jew is to entirely forfeit my inheritance. 2. To marry outside the faith would be a violation of the social-religious contracts and to commit social suicide where I would be more or less disowned as a social pariah. 3. They and my Orthodox siblings would refuse on any grounds to meet a non Jewish partner or any offspring resulting from this union, i.e. my patent’s grandchildren. I am certain they are committed to preserving legacy etc but my query here is if this mindset and retributive moves are common to Jewish law and custom. In other words, is this inherent to the doctrine and worldview of Judaism or are their decisions a net result of the senility of agining, bankrupt morality, a reactionary mindset from Jewish oppression, generational identity as survivors, or are these conventions strictly the result of centuries of religious and ideological conviction. Thank you for an honest and straightforward response. The religious mindset truly leaves outsiders baffled and mystified and it would useful to know if there is a religious ideology behind their motives or something else. Asher

What exactly does conversion change?
We know that Judaism is the only religion which is also a nationality. That is, a person who was born Jewish, who has a Jewish mother and who underwent circumcision at the age of 8 days, is Jewish in his religion and also nationality. I have a friend who recently converted to Judaism. Her previous religion was Islam and her nationality was Arab. Does her conversion only change her religion or does it also change her nationality?
