So, here’s the thing. I (22, F, Christian) study theology and religion and as part of the curriculum, last year I had to follow an introductory course on Judaism. I really was not looking forward to it, but at the end, I was so fascinated by the religion. I felt so connected to it and it felt so familiar. Someone suggested I look into my family history to see if I have Jewish ancestors and after extensive research, I believe I do. Even emailed by MO professor asking loads of questions. He invited me to the synagogue, but on the day of I couldn’t find it, so I didn’t go. Things just didn’t really work out and I was having a busy time at uni, so I just kinda left it, although it was always in the back of my mind and went to Israel three times after the course.
I have a Jewish boyfriend now, who I met accidentally and we are pretty serious. After meeting him and his family, my love for Judaism came back. Giving conversion to Judaism a serious thought, I’m afraid a rabbi would not want to convert me, because he would think I do it for love. I would definitely say it’s not for love and if this relationship doesn’t work out, then I’d still be interested. I’d be able to prove my interest prior to this relationship.
