I feel like I don’t have a place in the community, would love some advice!

Hi everyone! I’m very much Hew~ish~, my family practiced the religion until my grandma married my grandpa and her family cut all ties with her so she ended up stopping. Because of this, I have all the wonderful stories (and food!!) from the culture and religion but I would really like to get more involved. The issue is that I don’t know how to go to synagogue, not that my city even has one, and I don’t how how to celebrate in the right way. It makes me feel really really disconnected and very sad!! My university chaplaincy doesn’t have a rabbi or anything and there’s not a strong Jewish population at all, no societies or anything. If anyone has any advice then that’d be amazing, thank you so much and Chag Sameach!

ETA: my grandma in no way wants us all to be separated from our faith and our culture! She took my dad and aunts to temple sometimes when they were younger and he was offered a bar mitzvah but declined because he didn’t want to go to hebrew school on the weekends She wants to get back Judaism too but she’s also nervous- she hasn’t gone to temple in about 50 years so I put her in touch with a rabbi near her and hopefully she’ll get the confidence to go soon, it brings her lots of comfort
