Description

Can a married woman receive artificial insemination(AI) from a Jewish donor, a gentile donor, or from a mamzer?Is a mamzer required to have children? Can a golem be counted to a minyan? Is in vitro cultivated meat pareve? Are children through AI or in vitro fertilization(IVF) related to the father, mother, exempt their mother from chalitza, inherit their father, and/or are related to one another? Do children of kohanim through AI or IVF duchan? Why does being born Jewish depend solely on the mother? Can a kohen marry the daughter of a Jewish woman and gentile? Why are kohanim prohibited to marry converts? Why can one convert a infant? Does the baby boy through AI have milah on shabbos? Does a baby through AI require pidyon ha'ben?
