Like Madonna?

Madonna does not pretend to be Jewish from what I understand. And the Kabbalah group she is a part of has almost literally nothing to do with Judaism either.

Sammy Davis Jr. was not universally considered Jewish, but I know he was a friend of the Jews and a "member of the tribe."

I like a lot about Jewish history and culture. Can I coin a word and call myself a hebrewphile? Lol. Again, I'm not thinking of actually converting, but I do enjoy the culture and celebrating with my Jewish friends. They even call me by the Hebrew name I chose

I believe Mightqueen was joking.

Christianity is not a sect of Judaism. You could argue that Ebionites, who see Jesus as the messiah but NOT God, and who follow the Judaism of the Pharisees, as Jewish. But other kinds of Christianity, including "Messianic Judaism" are not Jewish.
