Welcome gentiles and Jews alike!
I created this blog to keep a detailed, real-time account of my journey converting to Judaism – Orthodox style. As we all know, hindsight is 20/20 and can lead us to believe that obstacles and milestones in our lives have been lived without strain or emotional turmoil. Add a religious conversion to the mix, and you could think that you memorized all the blessings of Shabbat without acknowledging that it took six months to discern between Hebrew letters.
Feel free to join me in my journey, and drop a line if you have any specific questions (or advice, I’m all ears) on what it’s like to go from gentile to Jew.
