Becoming a Jew

People convert to Judaism for many reasons. Some are seeking religious meaning in their lives — with or without a connection to a Jewish partner — and find that Judaism offers a spiritual and religious place in which they are comfortable. For others, a relationship or marriage with a Jewish person offers them a chance to explore Judaism. Participating in Shabbat dinner, a Shabbat or holiday service or Torah study may be a completely new and different experience, and can be the first step toward considering conversion. If you would like to consider conversion, contact Rabbi Beth Jacowitz Chottiner and ask for an appointment to discuss your needs.
