If a Catholic married a Jew
Question from Linda on 07-25-2013:
If a Catholic married a Jew, could they raise the kids Catholic and still celebrate the Jewish holidays?
Answer by Catholic Answers on 07-25-2013:
Linda--

Yes, so long as the children are not expected to practice Judaism. In fact, in most cases, the rabbi of a Jew who is allowing his or her children to be raised Catholic could be expected to explain to his or her congregant that children being raised Christian cannot be allowed to take on those observances reserved by Jewish law to Jews (e.g., wearing a tallit, reading from the Torah).
