I have two sisters Nicola Kirsch and Diana Kirsch I would Like to thank Rabbi Brawer For helping us achieve clarity when he confirmed in his "Rabbi I Have a Problem " JC Column that we cannot claim Jewish status as our Mother was of Christian descent and deceived the Beth Din by pretending she was a Jewess See my Blog & My Gallery

I Asked The Rabbi and this was his honest answer & we are grateful

Question: Our mother was married in an Orthodox synagogue in the UK and buried next to my father in a Jewish cemetery. However, we discovered that she was not in fact Jewish - she only pretended to be - and never converted. What should we put on her headstone and how does this affect my siblings’ and my Jewish status?
