Non-religious education

Question
I grew up in South America in a small town with no contact with other Jews. My mother tried to teach me in some aspects of religion, but my father - a catholic- did not agree. Now I´m a mother of 3, my husband is in the same situation, son of Jewish mother and catholic father and we realize we don´t know how to teach our children correctly. Am I still a Jew?
Answer
You, your husband and your children are- on the basis of the information you have written- all Jewish. Lack of a Jewish education does not alter a Jew’s basic identity. Please let me know where you are living so that possible solutions may be found to help you give your children a Jewish education.
