Here we'll consider what it means to be Jewish. What makes a person Jewish? What is a Jew? Does one have to be born Jewish to be Jewish? Is Judaism a race, a religion, or what? Are converts "really" Jewish? Is Judaism like a cult where everyone must agree all time? Is there a Jewish Pope? Why are there Jewish Movements if God is one? Is one Movement "more Jewish" than the others? What's the differences between Orthodox, Conservative and Reform Judaism? What is Jewish Renewal? Who are the Karaite Jews? What are Chassidim (Hasidim)? Where are the Ten Lost Tribes?
