Well, I'm told one's Jewish'ness is passed on through the mother's side of the family.

My mother's maternal great grandmother was jewish.. as was her husband.
My mother's maternal grandmother was jewish
My mother's mother is jewish
Which makes my mother jewish
So therefore I am Jewish... Just not raised in the faith.

And my kids won't be Jewish (if I have any) unless I marry someone Jewish.

I just found this out recently :P

yeah, you're nabbed, you're a Jew.
welcome to the club. :D

just be careful not to come to Israel, or you might accidentally become an Israeli citizen automatically without wanting to :lol:
