Thinking about conversion? People choose to become Jewish for many different reasons. Some came to Judaism after a long spiritual search. Many people who eventually convert had their interest sparked because of a romantic relationship with someone Jewish. Among the reasons most given by people who do convert are:
♦ Judaism has sensible religious beliefs.
♦ Becoming Jewish allows the convert to share the faith of the partner.
♦ Becoming Jewish makes the family religiously united.
♦ Becoming Jewish will make it easier for children by giving them a clear religious identity.
Think about your own reasons. Remember, conversion must be your own free choice, not done because of pressure, but out of a genuine desire to embrace Judaism. You may find this helpful.
