This blog is for those of us who have chosen Judaism or are exploring ways in which Judaism will be a part of your life. After many years in an interfaith marriage, I chose to convert and discovered there is a lot to learn about Judaism. There is also a lot to learn about yourself – especially about yourself as a Jew. For me, once the decision to convert was made, I was calm and settled about it. Because of that, I was surprised to find I felt something was missing once I converted.
I mean, I stepped out of the mikvah with plenty of knowledge of what Jews do, but no real insight into what I would do as a Jew. What followed was a period of extended study and questioning, along with experimentation with different aspects of Judiasm. Ultimately I came to an appreciation of myself as a Jewish woman.
