How do you prove you’re a Jew?

How do you prove you’re a Jew?  If you had to, how do you prove you are a Jew?  Non-orthodox converts have long struggled with the issue – the law of return does not protect us.  But an increasingly ultra-religious Israeli Bureaucracy puts even the status of Orthodox Jews in question.

Required reading for all American Jews.

    I think this is less than an issue for American Jews than Israelis who have to figure out a way to limit the power of the Orthodox in Israeli society. It also might be time for the Reform and Conservative movements to start seriously pushing their more liberal forms of Judaism to the typically irreligious Israel public.
