Hi, all. I went to Israel for vacation and I am incredibly interested in making Aliyah. I am a member of a chabad, practice Judaism, etc. But I am not a Jew. My entire paternal side is Jewish and I have my grandparent’s ketubah. One of my primary reasons for wanting to make Aliyah is to formally convert orthodox since I am currently in a location where I cannot. My husband is not Jewish at all and I know legally he can make Aliyah with me. However, I would love to know of anyone elses experience as a patrilineal Jew.
