Can a Catholic marry a Jewish person in the Church?

My daughter is currently dating a reform Jew and I would like to know if she will be able to marry in the Catholic Church if this relationship gets to that stage?


Yes, a Catholic may marry a Jew in a Catholic Church. The Catholic, of course, is obliged to do everything in his or her power to rear children in the Catholic faith.
