Last year sometime I posted for advice when I found out that I was Jewish. You were all so lovely and kind and encouraging, and from the help I received I actually got to celebrate Hanukkah for the first time in my life, and have been keeping kosher and observing Shabbat (as best I can) and have made so many amazing friends within the Jewish community and learned so much!
Not only am I the happiest I have ever been spiritually, but my mother is also beginning to want to celebrate the holidays and learn more. I saw someone on this sub say that a Jewish soul longs to be in a Jewish body, and I cannot agree more. I was raised religious catholic and it always felt wrong. Now I feel like I’m finally free and in a safe space to explore being religious and reclaiming what was lost from my family.
I can’t overstate how joyful I am to be here now and be able to raise my daughter in a Jewish home. Thank you all for your support and Baruch HaShem 💖
