  • Hello Jacob, I love your posts! Thank you for the time you put in to amuse us! Jacob, I am interested in moving to Israel. I wanted to know how your government can prove that I am of Jewish decent? My Grandmother was Jewish, my Dad's mom. They were German Jews, that came to America. I have always felt that my real home was in Israel, but I do not know anyone there. Can you point me in the right direction? The Lord bless you and keep you Jacob. Cheryl Mathis your friend in the US.

    • Thanks Cheryl :)

      When someone moves here under the Law of Return, the onus is on them to prove to the government that they qualify. The best proof you could have would be the original or a copy of your grandmother's parents' "ketuba", their Jewish marriage contract.
