Description Information
   7 ff., 277:216 mm., typewritten on stationary, many corrections in ink, signed and dated.
   Fascinating responsa concerning a young lady seeking to marry an Orthodox young man. She is the daughter of parents who originally lived and married in Israel. The parents were apparently not observant and moved to the United States and settled in a town with no Jews. The mother is described as promiscuous and in relationships with gentiles. Furthermore the parents divorced while the mom was already living with her second husband. The mom claims the daughter to be a product of the second husband prior to divorcing the first; the father has contradictory claims. Additional confusing circumstances are inserted by all parties. The issue before the rabbi is: Is this daughter a "bastard" and Biblically prohibited from marring a Jew or not. In a lengthy responsa the rabbi rules the daughter to be a product of a gentile relationship thus permissible to a Jew.
