noun informal derogatory
a Jewish name for a non-Jew.

If motorcycles have religion, a goy motorcycle would not be jewish.

I knew someone years ago who emigrated to Israel. Unfortunately for her, only her father was Jewish and that rendered her intentions of marrying and having kids very difficult - a large proportion of males considered her ineligible.
I met her while we were both learning German in Berlin.

What I took from that is that being Jewish is at least as much about ethnicity as about religion, children of an apostate woman would still be accepted.

only her father

According to what I read some years back, being an ethnic Jew is inherited from your mother, not your father. Part of the reason for that goes way back when a large number of people thought rape of women was a common sport, so the only way to be sure of a child's ancestry was through the mother.

Didn't that get changed? I seem to remember a lot of controversy about it in the papers.

Not being a Jew, I didn't keep up with. As I said, I read that some years back, so it may have change, and it may not have. I don't know.

I just checked and found this:

"Who is a Jew?" (Hebrew: מיהו יהודי‎‎ pronounced [ˈmihu jehuˈdi]) is a basic question about Jewish identity and considerations of Jewish self-identification. The question is based on ideas about Jewish personhood, which have cultural, ethnic religious, political, genealogical, and personal dimensions. Orthodox Judaism and Conservative Judaism follow the Halakha, deeming a person to be Jewish if their mother is Jewish, or they underwent a proper conversion. Reform Judaism and Reconstructionist Judaism accept both matrilineal and patrilineal descent. Karaite Judaism predominantly follows patrilineal descent.
