If a person converts to Judaism is he/she considered a real Jew if he/she doesn’t keep kosher?

I’m concerned because my mother converted properly and in accordance with Jewish law, but she never kept kosher.

    Welcome to MiYodeya. Since MY is different from other sites you might be used to, see here for a guide which might help understand the site. Note amongst others that personal questions are discouraged - you should really ask a rabbi who knows your mother and her conversion process. Great to have you learn with us!

  • In general, the general acceptance of commandments at the time of conversion is what matters. Full observance is not a condition of "staying Jewish". See for instance here

  • @msh210 I think this isn't a duplicate because it's asking if someone's conversion is valid if he/she never kept kosher

  • @ba I'm not seeing that. The question explicitly states that the conversion was "proper". The only question here is whether the person is Jewish.
