If you were born in Israel does that make you a Jew?
No. Being born in Israel makes you an Israeli. Being Jewish is an ethno-religious identity. Most Israelis are Jewish, but being born in Israel is not a criterion for being Jewish; conversion to Judaism or being born to a Jewish mother is.
You're Jewish if one of your parents are Jewish. According to many Orthodox synagogues, you're only considered Jewish if your mother was Jewish, since being Jewish traditionally comes from the mother. Many people forget that Jews are a race, not just a religion. If you're born in Israel, you're an Israeli, but not necessarily a Jew. Just like if you were born in India, for example. It doesn't make you Hindu.; it just makes you a native of India.
Of course it all depends on your parents. If one of your parents are Jewish, you're considered half-Jewish ethnically, and if your mother was Jewish, many will recognize you as fully Jewish.
Answer 2 is wrong. You are Jewish only if your mother is Jewish - or if you convert to Judaism. And anyone is welcome to and able to convert if they wish to; Jews just don't seek converts.
If you are born in Israel, then your nationality is 'Israeli'. But around 25% of Israelis are not Jewish. There are Muslims, Christians, Druze, atheists, Bahais and various other faiths all living and worshiping freely in Israel.
And just to add to the previous answer: even in Reform Judaism, if your father is Jewish but not your mother, you are only Jewish if you have been raised as a practicing Jew in a Jewish environment.
If you are born in Israel, you are an Israeli by nationality. You can also be considered an Israeli if you are an inhabitant of Israel, though not always legally. Those that are born in Israel are not however automatically Jewish. Those that are Jewish often decided to be Jewish, because Judaism is a religion, not a nationality or ethnicity, especially if you do not live in Israel. To be a Jew, you must be an adherent of Judaism, and not all born in Israel are.
According to Jewish Law in Orthodox and Conservative Judaism, you are Jewish if your mother is Jewish. Some strains of Reform Judaism accept patrilineal descent as a criterion for Jewishness, provided that the child has been raised as a practicing Jew. In those cases, this means that you are Jewish if either your father or your mother is Jewish. All strains of Judaism also accept converts.
According to Israeli immigration law (the Law of Return), non-Israelis who move to Israel can obtain automatic citizenship if one grandparent is Jewish (as the Nazis identified Jews during the Holocaust).
Being born in Israel doesn't automatically make you either Jewish or Israeli. Your status depends on your parents.
ISRALITE Jesus was born in Bethlehem in Judaea but his mother and her husband Joseph were Israelites - as Israel was a separate kingdom in the north (which contained Nazareth in Galilee, their home town). Judaea was the southern kingdom which was formed when Israel split into two. Therefore, Jesus was a Jew by religion, Judaean by birth, and an Israelite by descent.
It's unclear what the question is asking. 1) Can a non-Israeli Jew bring his non-Jewish wife to visit Israel? -- Certainly. Israel does not ban people on account of their religion. If it turns out that your wife only carries the passport of a country that does not recognize Israel, there could be a problem, but she would not be rejected because of her religion/ethnicity. 2) Can a non-Israeli Jew bring his non-Jewish wife to…
Judaism is a religious system, and as such can be accepted or rejected. One can become a Jew either by being born to a Jewish parents (or at least a Jewish mother) or by accepting the Jewish faith. A person born Jewish is still "Jewish" in the national sense, even if he does not accept Judaism. On the other hand, a Gentile would not be regarded by the community as a "Jew by Choice" other…
This question needs to have more details , but i believe that it refers as being the strongest country in the world . Israel is rated as the 6th most powerful country in the world. But , Israel has 100% control over The US . Russia's president is a Jew France's president is a Jew . So that's the only reason that Israel is considered the the most powerful country in the world.
I am not a Catholic. But Jesus was a Jew because Jesus primarily came to call the nation of Israel to repentance. Matthew 15:24 But He answered and said, "I was not sent except to the lost sheep of the house of Israel." Israel rejected Jesus as their Messiah and the way of salvation was open to 'who ever believes in him' ie all people Jew or gentile
God promised "the land of milk and honey" to the Jews and their descendants; and the modern state of Israel was made a state to serve as a homeland to the Jews if something like the holocaust ever happens again. Any Jew is welcome in Israel, no Jew is turned away. Also, the fact that Israel is 75% Jewish makes it understandable that world Jewry would feel a connection.
