If I convert Judaism, will my children be jewish?

My fiance is jewish, I am black. I am just curious. If I convert will my kids be jewish or does my blackness make my kids not acceptable to jews? I am only curious.

Updates:
I do know there are black jews but honestly I have only encountered white jews. I am not sure if those blk jews are accepted.

  • Judaism is one of the few religions where the religious bloodline goes through the mother.

    If it is accepted or not is a different story. Personally I think its stupid to convert for your partner. Its about your beliefs and not about pleasing your partners beliefs. He knew full well what your beliefs are and still got together with you. Additionally be converting for him and not for your belief in god you are disrespecting the religion in itself.

    • My fiance is atheist. He is jewish by ethnicity, raised by two jewish parents. All his family are jews. I am only curious.

    • Well his jewish origins do influence him and his behavior. He still wants a rabbi to officiate the wedding. I don't really care. lol

    • He also wants to incorporate jewish traditions into the wedding. This is coming from a man I have never seen wear a yamata or do anything jewish other than speak a bit of Yiddish. Lol. However I like it. As long as we "jump the broom" too. We will create our own traditions blending our backgrounds. It will be awesome.

  • I don't really know, ny Jewish friend was adopted by her Jewish Mother but her biological mother is not Jewish (she couldn't get pregnant so her father had an artificial insemination with an another woman's egg).
    She just found out last year and she wasn't happy , she said she can't marry a Cohen because her biological mother is not Jewish. But she is still jewish (my friend).
    So I don't exactly know how it goes but I heard it goes through the mother's bloodline, if you convert they will be Jewish i guess.

  • You children will choose for themselves. Im Christian because God chose me not because my parents chose for me.

  • Acceptance isn't important here, you make your children what you raise them like.

    • Not if she's a convert. The children have to convert too if their mother is a convert.
