Hi, this is my first post in this subreddit- just found it and joined today- I grew up an Orthodox Jew- went to Jewish schools l,camps etc. In high school I started to really question everything about God and religion. I’m at a point right now where I feel like everything about religion is a burden and don’t feel connected at all. I am not observant anymore and don’t think i want to be – at least in the extent that I grew up( modern orthodox) I do love the community aspect that comes along with it though. I’m having a lot of trouble especially because I am home with my parents way more often since my university is closed and moved online. My parents don’t know that i am not observant but I think they def suspect something. A part of me wants to tell them but I know that I can’t because it’ll break their hearts. I guess I’m posting this to rant and open to any words of wisdom
