My beit din and mikvah are schedule for February 15th, 14th of Adar.
I’m almost there! I can’t believe it! I’m so freaking close to done (or to beginning?) this whole process! It’s absolutely wild to me. I’ve been working on my conversion journey for over a year. I’ve learned so many things and I have so many more things to learn.
I currently exist in the space where anxiety and excitement feel exactly the same. I’m so so so stoked to be at this point, so ready to come home to Judaism and feel that validation and joy. I’m a little worried about my beit din, but I survived an actual oral defense of my undergraduate thesis, so I think I’ll be okay. I am the foremost expert in my own experience with Judaism, and I know it’s real and I am committed. That’s all I need to know.
I’m looking forward to the mikvah as well, despite the fact that it’s going to take place outdoors, in a river that stays 65° year-round, in February. I hope I remember to come back and post about that experience here.
