My journey to conversion: An Update
I’m really starting to feel more and more Jewish. That is a good thing since I am on the road to conversion. I feel bad when I have to miss Friday night Shabbat services at Temple Beth El. I have gotten involved with a committee at temple, as I wrote about in my post last week. I am trying to teach myself some basic Hebrew.
I feel a connection with Israel, although I do feel that the Prime Minister should feel out the Iran situation more before he stokes the flames in the region… Iran could be on a more friendly path, but I digress. I can’t wait to go to Israel in February and see all that I can.
I don’t eat pork at all anymore. I had canadian bacon on a breakfast sandwich a couple weeks back and I felt so bad that I didn’t realize it was in the sandwich at first. I removed the rest of it and finished the sandwich “sans-bacon” and it was still delicious. This Hobby Lobby “we don’t cater to you people” thing is offending me. I have hopes that when I am “officially” Jewish to make Aliyah someday at or before the time I retire. I am being more vocal about my conversion journey with my friends.
I feel Jewish more and more every day.
