Published originally in 1965, this reissue of a classic is now more relevant than ever. Jewish law legislates that a child is Jewish if the mother is Jewish, or one who had converted to Judaism according to specific halachic requirements.

And what if you’re imposing or the requestee has a hard time saying no? But you’ll also never get a “yes” without first asking.
