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?
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.
