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

Kiddushin with a stolen ring
Question: I am a Baal Teshuva and unfortunately, I had to spend some time in jail. Baruch Hashem, I turned around and did Teshuva. In jail, I made a friend who was a career thief. He also was Chozer Beteshuva with me and he merited getting married last week. He had told me that a number of years ago he robbed a jewelry store and got a number of rings etc. I suspect that he used one of those rings for Kiddushin. Now he stole it from a Non-Jew years ago does that make a difference. Should I say something to my friend or the Rav?
Question: I was at a wedding of a relative and I was standing next to the Chuppah. I saw that Chatan by mistake gave the ring to his Kallah first and then said, “Harei At Mekudeshet Li.” During the reading of the Ketubah, I told the Rav that he did the wrong order and maybe he should do it again. The Rav told me don’t worry and left it Was the Rav correct or should I tell the Chatan?
