|Introduction||I began this blog in April/May 2006 shortly after converting to Judaism under Reform auspices in Lincoln, Neb., as a way to discuss my journey. After all, the Jewish journey doesn't end with conversion, it's where it starts! This blog winds its way through a variety of cities -- Lincoln, Washington D.C., Chicago, Storrs (CT), and Teaneck (NJ) to Denver and hopefully onward to Israel -- as well as a variety of jobs. I trekked through Reform Judaism to Conservative to Orthodoxy while living in Chicago.
I completed my Orthodox conversion on January 1, 2010, got engaged a week later, and was married on May 31, 2010 and divorced in September 2011. I've made aliyah, and met the man who will be my husband. Life is good!
The purpose of this blog is to share my story, my struggles, my ups and my downs, and to connect with others about anything and everything Jewish and social media. Write me, talk to me, comment, and be well!
