A Convert’s Story-The Whole Truth

Posted on: May 7, 2013

Tonight I will be speaking to a group of potential converts at the synagogue I converted through. I’ve been asked to think about my conversion experience and the time that has since past and as a result, I’ve been thinking a lot about the last (Jewish) year.

Confession-I haven’t been to synagogue since Rosh Hashanah.

I’ve hosted a handful of Shabbat dinners and attended a few. We hosted Passover again this year (21 ppl this year). I joined a friend for her conversion ceremony and then another friend and I witnessed my first bris (more on that later). I pray in the morning and pray at night…but…

It’s not that I don’t feel Jewish, I do, I just don’t have a synagogue community that I’m in love with right now.

My go-to synagogue is great only when my favorite song leader is there. He’s a proud new papa and we’re coming into Spring…when Jews take a hiatus and make for the mountains. So I’m searching…for a community, for a synagogue, for that nudge to get me back before a bimah.

I only go about once every two months and I don’t host shabbat dinners or anything of that sort.
