My First High Holy Days

In August I started a course called “Introduction to Judaism”.

This year will mark my first celebration of Rosh Hashanah and Yom Kippur.

I have my highly coveted tickets to services.

Along with the process of converting comes the social anxiety of the cultural.  What to wear, what to cook. Remembering the few words of Hebrew I have learned so far that mark the start of various blessings and prayers..  Hopefully our teachers will be there as well as other class members.

Ahh. At 72 after trying on so many ideas, studying various religions I found a place where I feel comfortable in Reform Judaism…
