I cannot think of a more inopportune time to have writer’s block. There are 17 days until my conversion and I need to write a personal statement. Unlike pouring over mikvah accounts, I have decided not to read other blogger’s personal statements for a number of reasons. First and foremost, we come to this place of becoming Jewish in different ways, for different reasons. I suppose I’m not “blocked” as much as I’m having a hard time putting down what I’m feeling, what I’ve been through, what my expectations, hopes and dreams for my Jewish future into 5 minutes.
Rabbi L knew this would be a problem and it is.
