comment Are children adopted by Jews Jewish?
Also thanks @Isaac, I was considering starting a Meta thread on the subject of "too basic" and how the original Area 51 proposal I was following got merged in with an established site. I won't derail this thread with that separate issue :-)

Thanks Monica! I am not sure if I was converted as a child. I know I had a bris. I'll research this further. As far as converting, as I said to Seth, I don't intend to convert, I am very comfortable in my identity and was just looking to learn more about the law.

@msh210 point taken, I edited that into my question. I was trying to be brief/relevant and indicate that I have little/no emotional connection (having never known her)

comment Are children adopted by Jews Jewish?
Thanks Seth! I am accepted by the reform Jewish community and was interested to know what an Orthodox or Conservative community would say. It's also unlikely I would do anything, I am very comfortable in my identity now,I am mostly curious and looking to learn. Your answer is informative, thanks!

@IsaacMoses Thanks! I've been lurking here for a while, trying to think of good questions. Being reform, I've been afraid most of my questions were far too basic and was afraid this might not be the right site for me.
