I’m Officially Jewish!!!!!

I had my mikvah today! After 18 months of studying, Hebrew learning, and discerning, I am finally here! I went reform. So, I’m not halachically Jewish, but this group happens to match my theological beliefs (although I deeply respect the Orthodox and otherwise traditional crowd). My parents came and gave me shabbat candles, some family herloom candle holders, and a kippah! It’s great to have such a supportive family, and I’m excited to be a member of the community!!!

EDIT: Thank you everyone for all the mazel tovs!! I’m excited to celebrate my first Shabbat as a Jew tomorrow night!!
