I am a young African American male who wishes to become Jewish. Is there any rule or requirement that forbids me from doing this?
You would be most welcome to join the Jewish family 🙂
There are Jews of all nationalities, ethnicities and cultural backgrounds. In Israel, there are many Black Ethiopian Jews 🙂 Sammy Davis Jnr converted to Judaism, many years ago, just to give one example.
Please feel most welcome to ask us if we can be of any help 🙂 Check out http://www.becomingjewish.org
