comment What aspects of Yom Kippur may a non-Jew not participate in?
I doubt that will be an issue. It's a Chabad shul and I've yet to see a woman opening the ark. Furthermore, Rabbi knows that I'm converting.

comment What aspects of Yom Kippur may a non-Jew not participate in?
both, confusing sorry. I will be fasting and I have not yet been assigned a personal Rabbi. I've been attending services at a Chabad shul and I know the Rabbi doesn't do conversions so I don't want impose on him by asking him...

comment Does someone maternally Jewish, but without documented proof, need “giyur l'chumra”?
@RabbiMichaelTzadok , would one be issued with a 'certificate of Jewishness' if it is found that they are of matrilineal Jewish descent? How is that recognised? Also, what if along the line the ancestors deviated and practiced avodah zarah? I read that if a Jew decides to return to Judaism after idol worship, they have to immerse in mikveh, so is this required of someone who later discovers that they are of Jewish matrilineal descent?

comment Non-Jews & Shul Access
Thank you. The reason I posted this question is that despite my repeated calls and requests to visit a shul, they have not yet said I can visit. I don't know why. I really want to convert, I went into debt to move into walking distance of this shul and I'm not a secret 'Messianic'. I have since been attending services at a Reform shul because that beats staying at home, but I don't feel that I'm getting the full picture + there are too many 'Messianics' there.

comment Matrilineal descent & Zera Israel
@msh210, yes I am asking if the person fits the definition of Zera Yisrael since their status as a Jewish person is in doubt but it is acknowledged that they have Jewish ancestors. Thank you

comment Matrilineal descent & Zera Israel
@msh210 I tagged halacha because I thought matrilineal descent renders one "halachically Jewish" I apologise if this was offensive to you or if I am incorrect, and I have since removed the tag.
