TL;DR version of my situation: Both parents have Jewish ancestry; mom and dad. Both were raised Jewish as well. I have the proof of it all. Now, dad converted to Catholicism and my mom mostly left the practice. We still held small bits like celebrating Passover and Hanukkah, and my grandmother (paternal) read me the Torah verses and taught me some rules of Kosher while she was still alive. I want to return to Judaism.
On to my question::
So, I spoke to a Rabbi last night. I have to convert, and convert I shall do. One question. What does conversion entail? What should I expect?
I’m going to Shul on Saturday to really discuss in detail. I do not have toconvert, I wish to convert in order to return to Judaism. I do have the proof, and it was accepted, however my mother also left the practice as well. Therefore, in order for me to return to Judaism, I have to go through conversion. I’m determined. This is what I want. I just don’t know where to start, and I have questions. I know precious little about Judaism, mostly what I recall from growing up with my mom teaching me what she knew (primarily celebrating Hanukkah and Passover, sometimes Shabbat), and my grandmother telling me stories and reading me the Torah verses. I’d like so much to learn and convert. It’s just, I don’t know where to start, and what to ask.
Anyone have any suggestions about where I should start?
