Conversion to Judaism:
Giyur -- גיור
These studies focus on what it means to convert to Judaism. How does a person become Jewish? Are converts "really" Jewish? Is Judaism like a cult where everyone must agree all time? What you should know about the Jewish Movements before converting. Is one Movement "more Jewish" than the others? What's the differences between traditional Orthodox, Conservative and Reform Judaism? Most important, is conversion something you could consider?
There is much more to come so check back often! Please join me on my Facebook as well. "Like" and "Share" my studies with those you think might be of interest. As always your comments, questions, and corrections are invited.
