Miriam, converted in 2015
I am a Health educator and a member Beit Chayim Chadashim
I loved all the education--it took place at Congregation Kol Ami/URJ Intro to Judaism, a 16 week course. We were in the same cohort and knew all the stories of the people in the class intimately; we studied history, literature, and the importance of Social Justice.
I was surprised how accepting my family was; they were happy and excited about my connection to God and spirituality. My conversion rekindled their connection to a spiritual path.
