Jewish dating non jews
This is one of the rules of Kashrut (Kosherness) that is deeply ingrained in us - sort of like rigid toilet training, those of us raised in traditional houses just can't seem to mix milk and meat. My guy has said that he and his family would PREFER that he marry a Jewish girl, but the most important thing is that he marries a wonderful girl he loves who maintains the same values and ethical standards. KMT, An acquaintance of mine who is Catholic is married to a Jewish guy.He doesn't keep kosher, but he does have what I will call weekly "lessons" or "discussions" or "Torah study" with his Rabbi, he has that little thing on the doorjamb, and he OCCASIONALLY says a prayer before dinner (totally randomly, won't do it in public, and only sometimes does it at home...never know when he's gonna bust out a prayer). Remembering your thread I asked her the question that you have asked here.It depends on how religious he is and how much he cares about what his parents say. Wow I just wrote this whole long response and it disappeared on me! Firstly a somewhat derogatory term for a non jewish female is Shiksa, for a man it is Shaygitz.Their literal meaning is not positive, but they are used in everyday speech and have really lost their edge - depending on context of course.You can simply ask him in a suitable context if he would ever marry a non-Jewish girl. After all, you have a right to know how (un)serious he is about you.Whatever we tell you here may not apply in his case. Originally posted by curiousnycgirl The jewish LAW on conversion is that it is our obligation to try to talk someone out of conversion, by telling them how hard jewish life is, to test their conviction.
Every race and religion has good people and bad people (sorta like the witches in the wizard of oz ). I graduated yeshiva (jewish paraochial school) after 13 years, was raised orthodox, etc.Conversion hasn't been discussed at this point, although I would certainly entertain the idea if we were to get that serious.For the Jewish LS folks out there..you please advise me what it is that is generally told to a Jewish guy dating a non-Jewish girl that makes him decide to stop dating her?They may not like the fact that I am dating out of the faith - but they like HIM and he is a welcome part of all of our family gatherings - including our recent passover seders (dinners), one of which was actually in our synagogue.
As far as life style goes - if this man is dating you then I doubt he is very religious - so you should not see many differences in lifestyle. The only issue she ever had was that he would not eat meat with dairy - although he would eat cheeseburgers.

KMT I would continue to enjoy this relationship and see how it goes. I'm here for you if you have any further questions.
