Dara, converted in 2008.
I work in Marketing and Advertising, and I am a member of Temple Israel of Hollywood where I serve on the Board as VP of Education.
I loved studying with Rabbi Michelle in her office with all different people. We studied in small groups and took a long time. I spent a couple of years waiting to feel ready. Experiencing the mikveh with my daughter was as indescribably exciting as the day I give birth to her.
I was surprised that I felt no different than I did before because I had always said I had a Jewish soul.
