Best Answer

the Talmud describes a ceremony to deal with it -a qetsatsah ceremony, to punish a Jewish boy who loses the family inheritance to Gentiles. Here's how it works. If he ever shows up in his village again, then the villagers can fill a large earthenware jug with burned nuts and corn, break it in front of the prodigal, and shout his name out loud, pronouncing him cut off from his people. After that, he will be a rural orphan.
