Q. I’m a frum young woman that is having a hard time finding a shiduch. Hopefully Hashem send me the right kind of possible chosson that actually meets most of my expectations. He is a Ben Torah that learned in great yeshivos, and also has a good parnassah. The only drawback is that he is the son of German converts who became frum and made aliyah. Their parents (his grandparents on both sides), were real nazis, members of the party and worked for them. But some of their children ashamed of their past went the other extreme.
I once learned in seminar that Amalek nation still exist in our days and it is defined by our Gedolim as the ones that follow their ways. If that is the case, would I not be marrying into descendants of Amalek which is prohibited? Do we accept converts from Amalek? What about our children?
Please the answer is urgent.
A. See question bellow. Moadim Uzemanim (2: 164) maintains that even a true biological descendant of Amalek, if he truly repents and reproaches his previously cruel and brutal principles and beliefs he is not considered Amalek anymore, especially if he converts to Judaism. He thus explains why our Sages teach that the descendants of Haman, taught Torah in Benei Berak;
Horav Shlomo Miller’s Shlit’a opinion is similar, therefore you are permitted to marry the chosson you describe.
