Question
My six year old son was denied attendance at the Richmond Jewish Day School. I am Jewish, his mother is not. Can they deny a Jewish education for my son?
Answer
A child born to a non Jewish mother is not Jewish and can grow up to be a perfect pious human being without any Jewish education at all.
