Can you be Jewish and German?

Today’s question is from a person called John.

Sorry if it’s an ignorant question. But no worries I’m am grateful for your blessing and time to answer my curiosity. CAN YOU BE GERMAN AND JEWISH?

There is never an ignorant question when it comes to life. You can indeed be German and Jewish. Oddly enough, although not surprising, I am unable to find an official source online for how many Jews live in Germany and how many were bored in Germany.

But to answer the question you can be Jewish and be of any nationality even from places such as Iran, China and many more where you might not expect. What makes someone Jewish depends on their parents, being born into the religion or converting over later in life.

I hope this has answered your question!
