Penina, converted in 2009.
I am a former Teacher and currently a stay-at-home mother of two young boys.
I am active in the Jewish community: AIPAC; JNF, Magen David Adom.
Every step in my path felt equally important: the decision, classes with Rabbi Haim; the Bet Din itself helped me reframe my past in a non-judgmental Jewish way. Each step contributed to the whole--all matter.
I was surprised about how attached I feel to Israel.
