Abir Gershon Meyer, converted in 2016.
I am a Television producer and a member at Temple Sinai, Glendale. I joined a Honeymoon Israel trip and have participated in related activities after our return from Israel.
The first time I attended Shabbat services at Temple Sinai--it was the 4th week into classes--I went in and understood what Shabbat was. I wanted to leave the work week behind and transition into Shabbat.
While my spiritual path started as a personal one, I have been surprised how much I have enjoyed the community aspect--hosting seders, and seeing familiar faces at services.
