My daughter is dating a non jew

on his/her character, intelligence, level of learning, financial status, family and health status, appearance and level of religious observance.

After the match has been proposed, the prospective partners meet a number of times to gain a sense of whether they are right for one another.The number of dates prior to announcing an engagement may vary by community. In stricter communities, the couple may decide a few days after originally meeting with each other.I ended up marrying a Jewish man with the same general mostly secular upbringing as me but we participate in the local Jewish life as we can and tell our children who they are.Less than 1/2 of Jews marry Jews so clearly lots of Jews date non-Jews. It has many similar pillars and some wonderful traditions.Therefore, snagging an NSJ is either a function of pure luck or an intensive active search process, and therefore JYAs are willing to put up with noticeable discomfort just for the bragging rights over their peers.

I know very little about Judaism and would love to hear your thoughts. In my experience (as a Jewish woman who does not go to synagogue because I haven't found one I like) many men who identify as Jewish based on their family heritage and what they grew up with will date all kinds of women.

There are different levels of being "observant." He's probably not orthodox and definitely isn't Hasidim if he's dating your daughter. I personally believe Mary was raped by someone who refused to admit to being Jesus' father. I've worked with and been friends with Christian people active in their church, and they've been a pleasure to be around. I think the foundations of Christianity are fantastic.

I've also worked with Christian people active in their church who have surprised me with how petty, passive-aggressive and all around awful they are. Lots of the things Jesus (is purported to have) preached are wonderful.

I am happy to know that it’s not weird for them to date.

It’s possibly your DD has expressed a willingness to explore conversion.

Some engage in it as a profession and charge a fee for their services.
