Jew By Choice: I Don’t Like the Phrase

I do not like the term Jew by choice as it relates to Jews who have converted. It is another way of separating out Jews who are born Jewish versus those who were not. I believe that in today’s society, at least in this country, if a Jew, regardless if that person is a practicing Jew or not, if that person identifies as a Jew, that person is choosing to do so and therefore is a Jew by Choice.
