Halacha - apostasy
Submitted by Lionel Broder  Answered by Rav Peretz Moncharsh
Answer: Actually, it originally said in Shulchan Aruch that one may not claim to be a "non-Jew" and due to pressure from the censor they were forced to change it to the less controversial "Akum". Therefore, it is not permitted to deny being Jewish at all. However, one may answer in a vague and deceptive manner to trick the person into thinking ho is not Jewish, as long as he does not say so explicitly..
