Halacha - Non-jews
Submitted by Tzvi Sch  Answered by Rav Peretz Moncharsh
Question: Lichvod Ha'Rav: Is there any 'mitzvah' to try to influence a non-jew, son of a jewish-father, to convert?
Answer:

Certainly as a general rule we do not try to persuade non-Jews to convert, and having a Jewish father would not create an exception. The only possibility I can imagine is if drawing the son closer to Judaism would make it more likely to induce the father to be chozer b'teshuva. However this seems a little too far-fetched to me.
