Hi everyone! Thanks for bearing with this post, a brief lurker.
My father is Jewish (mom is not), yet I understand that currently means that I am not of Jewish descent. However I have been with my Jewish SO for 4 years, and want to get closer to my Jewish identity. My mom’s side however has drilled into me Christian values since I was a young child, and I get skittish leaving behind the whole “Jesus Christ is our Lord and Savior” concept, so I am looking into Messianic Judaism. However I feel that if I were to better immerse and educate myself, then I would be fine converting fully to Judaism (I’m assuming Reform).
Any advice is appreciated, thanks!
