So I’ve been basically “excomunicated” from my family and lifelong friends for “losing my faith” in Christianity. But I’m not an atheist. I still believe in God, just not the New Testament and Christianity in general. I am single and 50, so not wanting to convert because of marriage or anything, and other than ancestral DNA, have no relatives who are Jewish. But I’ve always had a distinct respect for Jews and Judaism in general.
Real question: What are my chances of becoming a Jew? I’m a former Christian but not an atheist. I’ve long held a fascination with Judaism, even when I was a believing Christian.
