Judaism is transmitted through the female line. Kerry’s grandmother was Catholic and he’s Catholic. By the way, many, many of today’s Germans and people of German ancestry have Jewish ancestors.
Here’s some information on that:

What you are telling me is that in the HYPOTHETICAL case that Kerry would ask for Israeli citizenship based on his father's ancestry, they would deny it? I mean, they would deny it not because who he is, but because his mother was not Jewish? I know that following the mother's line follows Halacha law, but I doubt Hitler cared for such niceties! It's been the question for centuries: what is a Jew?
As a disclaimer, I don't care whether Kerry is Catholic of Jew. American Jews seem to only pay lip service to Israel... if they do, at all. Look at Rahm Emanuel!
