Welcome to my blog.  It’s a bit of a work in progress and has been for over a year, but that makes sense when you realize that this is the blog of a Jew in progress.  My family and I have been on an Orthodox Jewish conversion journey that has lasted 7 years and taken us across the North American continent…and back.  Our story is a roller coaster ride of epic highs and lows and it’s still ongoing.

I write about Orthodox Judaism, conversion, life as an Orthodox conversion candidate in Alaska, and most recently, about moving from Alaska to the midwest as part of that conversion journey.  I write about heartbreak, but also love, of determination and faith, and about the mundane.  I invite you to join me and share in this journey of ours and I also share what resources I come across if you’re working on your own Orthodox conversion journey as well.
