Rabbi Elchanan Lewis

10 Sivan 5766
Question
My wife’s father is not jewish, but her mother is 100% jewish. in our ketubah is written her name and her mother’s name, like Chane Gitl bat Faige Malke. Is it correct? Because the halacha says, that it should write her father’s name! like hane gitl bat george.
Answer
It’s okay. There are other opinions as well that don’t write any parents name, but your ketubah is good. The father's name in any case should not be entered.
