Jewish. My dad was a middle eastern jew, my mom is turkish/eastern european Jew.

I've seen some people in this thread, saying that being jewish is a religion and not a race. It's a bit more complex than that.

For instance-

There are many Jewish people (myself included) who have never been to a synagogue, that do not practice Judaism but we are still Jewish. The popular view is, if the childs mother is Jewish, then the child is Jewish. Off the top of my head, i can't think of any religion that does that.

However, it can't really be called a race either seeing as they are Jews from different ethnic backgrounds. There's not really a general consensus, but the increasing term used would probably be "Of a people."

Personally, i dont put much emphasis on my background.

Incorrect. Jews are not a race.

Defining Jews by race is an error and in no way reflects the true Jewish belief. Membership in the Jewish people is not dependent on race. For the Jews, peoplehood has always been defined only by acceptance of the Torah. In the words of the famous philosopher Rabbi Saadiah Gaon (882-942), This people is only a people through its Torah. Any Jew who rejects the Torah is not part of the Jewish people. Any individual of any race can become a Jew and be part of the Jewish people.

Therefore if you reject the Torah then you are Not Jewish. Simple as that.
