Jay Shapiro talks about one of the unique issues that have not yet been answered unequivocally: Who is a Jew?

Does Judaism depend on the fact that the mother of a Jewish person? Does it depend on the person's feeling or is it real nature?

In light of the controversy in American Jewry over the issue, Jay asks whether the rabbinate determines who is a Jew, whether there is a specific law that deals with the question and wonders how to bring all types of Jews closer.
