Halacha - WHAT MAKES A JEW A JEW.
Submitted by NAFTALI  Answered by Rav Peretz Moncharsh
Question:
Answer:

If the baby is born to a gentile female he is not born as a Jew. In order to become a Jew the child must be converted by a reliable Beis Din (Jewish Court), which includes but is not limited to circumcision and immersion in a mikva. The Beis Din will also ascertain that the child will be raised as a religious Jew who will be taught to observe all the commandments and halachos. If the Jewish father is intermarried to the non-Jewish female, this is highly unlikely. The first step is to contact your local Orthodox Rabbi or Beis Din, because the proceedings are not valid without their supervision.
