Becoming Jewish

As the year 5779 (Sept 2019 - Sept 2020) began I felt a longing to reopen my spiritual life. Knowing that my experiences with Christianity can best be likened to an abusive relationship, and inspired by my Facebook friends' posts about Rosh Hashanah I began a journey into Judaism. I was honored with an invitation by a friend to celebrate Yom Kippur with them at Nishamat Shoom. This experience was eye-opening and transformative, and left me with a hunger to learn more. That hunger propeled me head over heels into Torah. Through SVARA style beit midrash I found new communities and new langauge to describe the richness of creation, and holiness of the Creator.

At Mayyim Hayyim on the 18th of Elul 5779 (Sept. 18, 2019) I joined my future with the Jewish people, and came home to the spiritual community I was born to rejoin.

This page is currently a place holder for the notes, reflections, and questions that I plan to wrestle with as I continue to become my truest self. All opinions, thoughts, and questions are my own and are not meant to be reflective of the communities which inspired them.
