i’m in the military and I deal with a lot of different people. How do I convince somebody that with racks conversion is the way to go?
beyond that, in Israel we were told Halachic conversion was not enough. The Rabbi had to be on 'the list'
Rabbi Porter - are you here?
I noticed the some of the speech mentioned that converts do well, have good jobs, and raise good families. What work can be done in terms of addressing social bias in Jewish communities and how that creates issues at all levels?
kol ha kavod to Rabbi Mitch
What was your biggest disappointment since becoming Jewish?
what's the hardest the to do now that you are jewish?
how does your family feel about your conversion?
I think people want to know why people convert because it's inspiring. We're all looking for inspiration. And sometimes kids from our yeshiva system turn away from Judaism, so maybe you have a way to reach them.
How do you feel when you experience anti-Semitism or see it in the world?
Wilson girls, I wish you all the best. your parents might enjoy a book called the unknown sanctuary.
what's your favorite Jewish holiday and why?
tikvah, Mr. olsen rabbi frand has a shiur/essay on cynicism. it's a challenge!
Thank you all for opening up to us. Your words are inspiring.
Do you feel any connection to Jewish individuals who, as Baal Thesuvas, chose to become religious?
Talia and Chana, how does it work with keeping kosher and stuff when you are home with your parents?
Thank you to all of the speakers for a beautiful evening! May Hashem bentch each and every one of you in all you do
