a gay black woman's discovery of her jewish self

I’m Registered at…

Posted on: July 20, 2011

Judaica.com, Echlers, West Side Judaica, and Jewstuff.org.

J/K.  I’m not registering for a party I haven’t started planning yet.  I actually cannot even think about planning a party although there will be one.  The thing I am most focused on is the fact that on August 17th I will officially join the Jewish people!  I may have jumped up and down outside the synagogue today after leaving my rabbi’s office.  I may or may not have immediately dialed my girlfriend and shrieked into her ear.  I may or may not have felt like running, skipping, and jumping down Central Park West.  I may or may not have gone to Jewish websites to browse kippah and tallit that I cannot afford…

A few things to do.  Solidify my Hebrew name, write my personal statement, and tell my parents (again).  It’s all anxiety-provoking so for today I am basking in the knowledge that in less than a month I will join the Jewish people.
