We are expecting a baby in August. Husband is an Orthodox Jew and I converted to Reform. He was raised very observant but is not at all like he used to be as a child (obviously lol). I would like the baby to be Orthodox leaving my options as me converting or my baby converting. However me converting- it’s just something that I don’t feel right or sincere for myself, so that’s that. I understand that newborns can be converted and this is something that I do, however, really want for him/her. How difficult is it to have my baby convert? Is it appropriate for us to contact Orthodox shuls in the area to ask, though we don’t belong to one? Thanks.
Converting newborn? Need advice.
