What makes a family Jewish?

This is a question that seems to be getting increasingly complicated. Many used to stick by the old rule “if a Jewish woman has a baby then that baby is Jewish.” Neat and tidy. By the way, if you’ve ever wondered where that answer comes from, we have included it in this issue (you’ll need all your brain cells). We also have essays from a young black woman on her way to converting; a gay woman who adopted black children; and several other essays that may challenge your assumptions. What do you think makes a family Jewish?
