An elderly Rabbi and his wife were living in a condo where they put up a sukkah at the appropriate time. the condo association told them to take it down, and when they refused, the association imposed a fine. Neither the Rabbi nor the association would budge, and after several years of the sukkah being put up and the couple fined, the matter was finally settled in court where the couple's right to a sukkah was upheld and the association required to pay the couple a significant sum plus court costs. The following succos sukkahs were put up on many decks. As the title says, "Just Jew it."

My children, grandchildren, and myself have always had a heart for the Jews -not knowing at the time that my grandmother was 1/4 Jewish. Watching this brought what I call cold God chills to me. Thanks

There is no such thing as being 1/4 Jewish. It's all or nothing. If your grandmother's mother was Jewish, she's Jewish. And if your maternal grandmother was Jewish, you're also Jewish.
