This blog will be my personal experiences with conversion. I'll try to keep it from being all about soul-searching and navel-gazing, because I don't think those things really help (or interest) anybody. My intention is for this to be a series of posts about what I've learned. You'll probably see summaries of discussions from conversion class, and probably some book reports for the Rabbi's suggested reading.

For the next year or so, I'll be taking a conversion class. My Rabbi refers to it as "Intro to Judaism". Since it's going to be a personal and spiritual journey, keeping a journal just makes sense to me. Because I'm the kind of girl who finds comfort in research, I've scoured the internet for information about Jewish conversion. A lot of what I've found so far tends toward the technical, what-to-expect, bland description. I'm hoping to change that a bit.
