  1. You cannot convert to Judaism any more than you can convert to being chinese, sorry Drew.

  2. Really UK Rapper? I was able to convert to Judaism and I am considered Ashkenazi. Ruth converted to Judaism as did many others. Once one has converted, one is considered as if you were Jewish by birth.
