Hey, r/Judaism. It’s been a while. Roughly a year, I think.
I just figured I would give a small update on me.
Despite my username, I am no longer a student. I graduated with my Masters this past May. Now I’m in Israel to study at yeshiva for a year. So, I guess my username is still accurate for a few more months?
Due to a number of circumstances in my life, I am in the process of pursuing an Orthodox conversion. I even used an alt briefly because I wasn’t 100% comfortable talking about it on my main account.
Some may remember that I originally converted with a Conservative community. I still have an admiration and love for the Conservative movement and genuinely hope that it continues. It’s just that what I ultimately want out of my Jewish life is to be found in Orthodox communities (widespread observance, communitarianism, etc.)
Yeshiva keeps me pretty busy, so I’m not sure how active I’ll be on this sub, but I just wanted to drop by and say “Hi.”
