There is nothing as comforting as getting information and having your questions answered. Well, nothing as comforting unless it also comes from two loving, righteous Rabbis like the ones we met with today.
We felt heard and cared for. We received direction and have a clearer path to the next steps towards conversion. At least for the next foreseeable future, we’ll be traveling back and forth for classes in order to get to know the rabbi who will hopefully become our sponsoring Rabbi.
We were told to continue in our observances but with some exceptions like making sure to not keep Shabbat 100% and to leave out the parts of a brachah that have אשר קדשנו במצותיו וצונו because only Jews are commanded in all of Torah.
With G-d’s help, we will be accepted as conversion candidates and living in a Jewish community soon! But Hashem is in control. Ein od milvado.
