Who is a Jew according to the liberal Jewish Journal? Next question, is it a religion for the liberal Jewish Journal like Catholicism or is it a race or is it a cultural affiliation like "Catholics" such a Joe Biden's "Catholic" cultural affiliation?
The liberal Jewish Journal said:
As if the question of Jewish underrepresentation playing Jewish characters isn’t complex enough, today there is a bigger question facing the community as to who is a Jew. Orthodoxy holds that Judaism can only be passed on through one’s mother, whereas the Reform and Conservative movements accept that it is enough if someone’s father is Jewish. So if an actor is cast as Tevye but only their father is Jewish, or they have had a Reform conversion, from an Ortho-dox perspective they aren’t Jewish. The obvious solution in the case of theater is just to go with someone’s cultural affiliation, whether they are considered Jewish or Jew-ish. If however you are still concerned, you could stand by the stage door after the performance and demand to see the Tevye-actor’s circumcision.

Next question, is it a religion for the liberal Jewish Journal like Catholicism or is it a race or is it a cultural affiliation like "Catholics" such a Joe Biden who is "Catholic" by cultural affiliation or because his parents were Catholic?
