Question:
I have a friend of Hispanic origin who later converted to Judaism. About a month ago, Im sorry to say,
his grandfather died. Before passing on, he gave my friend a chain with a silver cross on it. This cross
has great sentimental to his father as well him.
Under Jewish law, what should my friend do about the cross?
Answer:
With all due respect to the family heirloom, he should find it a dierent home, as it is not an item for a
Jew to keep.
The chain without the cross can be kept.
