  1. I wish you every success in your journey! You may be interested in “Doublelife: One Family, Two Faiths and a Journey of Hope” which my wife and I recently wrote. It is our account of our own journey from being intermarried (she was Christian) to becoming a Jewish family. We wrote it in the hope that it would be of help and inspiration to people converting to Judaism, whether or not part of an intermarried family.

      • It’s a dual affiliated synagogue of Conservative and Reform. When I complete it the conversion will be recognized by both. Theologically I prefer reform, although I like the Conservative services lol 🙂

      • That’s awesome! I would love that! I didn’t know synagogues like that existed. They for sure don’t here in the Midwest :/ I do like the more liberal views of reform, and that the Bible isn’t taken literally. There are many aspects of Conservative and Orthodox that I like, mainly the more structured practices and observances.

      • Yeah, here in Salt Lake City there are about 100+ Jewish families, everyone learns to get along lol. There are a lot more cooperation here than in NY where I came from. I do prefer the traditional services of Conservative and Chavad but theologically I am the same – I like the autonomy of the reform theology.

  2. Starting the journey myself and I can relate with a lot of the fears mentioned in some of the posts, I absolutely loved this blog, very simple but at the same time very very personal, too bad some of the entries are really short but very impressive given the fact that you have two kids.
    Shalom

    ps: you havent mentioned your hebrew name yet

    • Shalom! Thank you for your kind words! Starting out I had better intentions and hopes to fill the blog with more posts, information, and things like that, but that’s the way life goes sometimes! 🙂 I still haven’t decided 100% on my Hebrew name yet. I flip back and forth between Sarah (not very original seeing how that’s my given name, but at least I’m strongly connected to it) or Molly (it was my grandmothers name/Hebrew name). Hope you have a wonderful journey to Judaism, and please feel free to contact me or update me on how things are going for you!
