While each person’s path to Judaism is unique, they all share a deep sense of commitment to their newfound faith. Miriam, a highly successful nurse, chose to convert to Judaism on her own after becoming disillusioned by what she thought were Catholicism’s overly negative views of women; Ahava, also a former Catholic, embraced Judaism after falling in love with a Jewish man; and Alanna, who grew up as a conservative Christian, always felt uncomfortable with Christian teachings that discouraged questioning. Within these pages, you will also discover the story of Reda and Nour, a Muslim couple from Lebanon who chose to leave their home in Beirut because near-constant strife in the Middle East made life difficult for them. As these stories reveal, one’s decision to convert often raises questions and concerns about familial acceptance or rejection; whether to keep kosher or give up past holiday traditions; challenges in choosing a synagogue; and how to balance interfaith relationships. Yet despite these challenges, Judaism’s teachings and traditions bring fulfillment and comfort to those who embrace the faith.
