"Thorough, inspiring, fun, easy to comprehend, at your own pace, exactly what was missing!"

How do you convert online?
You don't actually convert online. You study in an online program. That is to say, no brick and mortar class is necessary. You still need the conversion rituals at the end: beit din, mikvah immersion, etc. These programs are for people who cannot attend a regular brick and mortar class. Not all rabbis accept this kind of learning, but increasingly many do, outside of Orthodox and offical Conservative. You receive a curriculum, and can complete it on your own, with our feedback. You then convert with a local rabbi/beit din or our beit din.
Not all accept online conversion study and not every conversion is accepted by all. The Orthodox and the Conservative Movements in general do not accept distance learning for conversion. But, we have rabbis, all genuine ordained, who sit on our beit din who have converted hundreds, who particapte all over the world. Other local Rabbis have accepted our course and converted our students with whom they have a relationship.

The process of conversion penetrates a person's innermost character and spiritual being, demanding an examination of self and other that may culminate in the adoption of a new identity.
Because of the potential consequences both to the convert's psyche and to the Jewish people--particularly at times when conversion to Judaism was banned by the ruling powers--rabbis have always urged conversion candidates to carefully consider their own motivations.

Note signing up for the conversion does not guarantee the beit din will agree to convert you. In almost all cases they do after the course, but it is not automatic. You must finish the work, pursuade them of your sincerity, etc.

The Talmud, in fact, states that the first question that the beit din--the rabbinic court that rules upon a conversion--must ask of a potential convert concerns motivation, "Why should you wish to become a proselyte; do you not know that the people of Israel at the present time are persecuted and oppressed, despised, harassed, and overcome by afflictions?"
Conversion candidates are urged to learn as much as possible about Jewish religion and culture, to seek out Jewish experiences, and to talk to a rabbi early in the process. When both candidate and rabbi agree that the time for conversion has arrived, and the candidate is ready, the formal conversion procedure begins.
Denominational Differences
Because the different movements have such different visions of what constitutes a "good Jew," the requirements for conversion can vary significantly among them. A traditional beit din, for example, expects a conversion to be based entirely upon the desire to become a Jew, whereas the liberal movements permit more latitude in a candidate's initial motivation. Many liberal rabbis will perform a conversion for the sake of an upcoming marriage, reasoning that exposure to Judaism in the context of an intimate relationship is likely to inspire such a convert to eventually accept Judaism for its own sake. Even the process of conversion is a matter of contention among the movements. Whereas traditional rabbis expect the candidate to undergo all rabbinically prescribed rituals, liberal rabbis may use rituals more selectively (althoughcircumcision is a nearly universal requirement).


If the candidate is male, the first step in a traditional conversion is to undergo brit milah, or circumcision, or if already circumcised, hatafat dam brit [ritual extraction of a drop of blood]. Reform and Reconstructionist rabbis may offer the candidate a choice about hatafat dam brit if he is already circumcised.
Once the circumcision has healed, a beit din is assembled. This three-person court, generally comprising at least one rabbi and two other observant Jews knowledgeable about the laws of conversion, has sole authority to rule on the convert's readiness for conversion. The beit din explores a candidate's sincerity by evaluating his or her knowledge, motivation, and intent to live as a Jew. For traditional Jews, a convert must assent to kabbalat ol ha-mitzvot, acceptance of the yoke of the commandments, that is, a willingness to accept the validity and often to commit to the performance of the Jewish commandments. Liberal rabbis usually ask only for a commitment to perform selected commandments.
Once the beit din is assured of the candidate's sincerity, the candidate usually immerses in the ritual pool, or mikveh, if available, or else in a lake or the ocean, or, in some cases, a swimming pool [however, only certain non-Orthodox authorities allow a pool].
The mikveh water is symbolic of the in-between state, or liminality, of the convert, who is undergoing what amounts to a spiritual rebirth. The immersion, known as tevillah,symbolically cleanses the convert of past misdeeds and prepares the convert for a different future and destiny. Following immersion, the candidate is officially considered a Jew and can legitimately recite the blessing for immersion that includes the words "who has sanctified us with the commandments."
The newborn Jew takes on a Hebrew name, but a given name only is not sufficient to locate a person within the Jewish tradition. When Jews sign legal documents or are called up to the Torah, their parents' names are appended to their Hebrew names to locate them in Jewish spiritual space. A convert traditionally adopts Abraham and Sarah as spiritual parents and in legal situations is referred to as "ben Avraham Avinu," "son of our Father, Abraham," or "bat Sarah Imenu," "daughter of our Mother, Sarah."
Even for the most sincere converts, the post-conversion period can be challenging, as the new Jews-by-choice reestablish relationships with their birth families, develop new ones with newly acquired Jewish families, and work to bridge the emotional gap between feeling like "a convert" and being a Jew who truly feels part of am Yisrael, the Jewish people. With patience, persistence, and a realization that the process is one of evolution, not revolution, the convert acquires that combination of knowledge, habit, and subculture that constitutes an enduring Jewish identity

The Book of Jewish Practice, by Louis Jacobs (Behrman House, 1987). In this companion volume, Rabbi Jacobs describes many central Jewish religious practices


SHOULD I CONVERT TO JUDAISM?

This information is for those who are thinking about converting to Judaism. Conversion to Judaism means accepting the Jewish faith and becoming part of the Jewish people.

Judaism welcomes sincere converts. In fact, Abraham and Sarah, the founders of the Jewish people, were not born Jewish. Throughout the ages, untold numbers of people have converted to Judaism. In the United States today, for example, there are about 200,000 people who chose to accept the Jewish faith.

If you are considering becoming Jewish too, here are some suggestions for you as you explore Judaism a step at a time.

Join the Newsletter for people interested in conversion to Judaism Maym Chaim Living Waters

*Consider why you are thinking about conversion to Judaism. 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 that

(1) Judaism has sensible religious beliefs.

(2) Becoming Jewish allows the convert to share the faith of the partner.

(3) Becoming Jewish makes the family religiously united.

(4) 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.

*Learn as much as you can about Judaism. Some reading suggestions are included on this Web Site. Go to lectures, take introductory courses on Judaism which are offered by many colleges and Jewish congregations, and talk to some Jewish friends. Remember that Judaism has an important ethnic component. You are joining a people, not just a religion, and so need to learn about different aspects of Jewish culture and about Israel.

*See if Judaism's basic beliefs and practices make sense to you. Remember, though, that Judaism is a faith of good deeds, not forced creeds. There is more concern in Judaism that you act morally than that you have specific beliefs. All Jews share a passion to make the world a better place. It is difficult to provide a brief summary of basic Judaism. To get you started, though, here are some general Jewish beliefs that are widely held among Jews:

(1) Judaism introduced the world to the idea that God is one, not many, and is kind, loving, and personal. In Judaism you pray directly to God and can receive help, guidance, and understanding. You can pray on your own and with a prayer community in a Jewish congregation. Judaism accepts the idea of a covenant, or agreement, between God and the Jewish people.

(2) Judaism doesn't accept the idea that people are born evil. Rather, people have free will to choose between right and wrong.

(3) Judaism encourages religious freedom of thought. Judaism welcomes probing spiritual questions.

(4) Judaism has, for 4000 years, emphasized a strong sense of family and the value of a close community.

* Experience Judaism as it is lived. Visit a Jewish congregation to sample a service or attend a Jewish ceremony, such as a Passover seder or a Sabbath meal. While ritual practices vary greatly among American Jews, all Jews have some rituals that, for example, celebrate the Jewish holidays and the Jewish family. If different sorts of Jewish institutions are near you such as a Jewish bookstore, museum, YM-YWHA, community center, and so on, try to visit them.

*Talk about your thoughts and feelings with your partner, your friends, and your family. It is important, for example, to discuss your feelings openly. It is common to experience some moments of doubt or fear of the unknown. It is also vital that you stay in touch with your birth family. Converting to Judaism does not mean you are abandoning your family, your friends, or your fond memories of past family life. When discussing conversion with your family, explain your reasons to them directly and tell them of your continuing love. Most families are supportive, often to the surprise of the person converting. Some families, however, do need reassurance and to have their questions answered patiently. There are also, sadly, some families, who see the conversion as an abandonment.

* At some point in learning about Judaism, preferably as early as possible but especially as you get more serious about actually becoming Jewish, you should talk to a rabbi about conversion to Judaism. As you study and learn about Judaism, you will read about different religious movements within Judaism. There are rabbis for each of these movements, so it is important to study and understand the differences among the various branches.

Additionally, different movements may have different conversion requirements. Here are some typical steps to take in order to convert to Judaism:

--Find a rabbi. Some traditional rabbis may actively discourage potential converts by turning them away three times. This is a test of how sincere the would-be convert is in wishing to become Jewish. Other rabbis are more welcoming right from the initial contact.

--After finding a rabbi, there is a period of study to learn such matters as Jewish beliefs, rituals, and prayers. This study might involve working directly with a rabbi or study in a conversion or introduction to Judaism class.

--Orthodox and Conservative rabbis require a male candidate for conversion to have a circumcision (or a symbolic one, if a circumcision has already been performed). Reform Judaism might not require a circumcision.

--Orthodox, Conservative, and some Reform rabbis require all candidates for conversion to go to a ritual bath called a mikveh. The candidate is immersed in water and says some prayers.

--The candidate for conversion appears before a Bet Din, or religious court, consisting of three learned people to see that all the steps of the conversion process have been done properly.

--A Hebrew name is chosen. Sometimes there is a public ceremony celebrating the conversion.

Conversion to Judaism is a challenge, but almost all those who have gone through it describe it as exciting, as a time of real personal and spiritual growth and as a time of intensified feelings of love and closeness to family.

Now it is your time to consider. The Jewish community stands ready to welcome you. We need you, and we want you, if you freely wish to join us. We wish you well as you search for your path in life.

For further information, you might wish to read the following books:

Conversion to Judaism: A Guidebook, by Dr. Lawrence J. Epstein, (Jason Aronson Inc., 1994). This guidebook, by the author of this article, provides advice and information about becoming Jewish.

Choosing Judaism, by Lydia Kukoff (Hippocrene Books, 1981). This book, written by someone who converted to Judaism herself, discusses conversion from a Reform Jewish perspective.

Becoming a Jew, by Maurice Lamm (Jonathan David, 1991). Rabbi Lamm presents conversion from an Orthodox Jewish point of view.

Your People, My People: Finding Acceptance and Fulfillment as a Jews by Choice, by Lena Romanoff with Lisa Hostein (Jewish Publication Society, 1990). This is an easy-to-read guidebook written by a convert for other converts.

It All Begins With a Date: Jewish Concerns About Intermarriage, by Rabbi Alan Silverstein, Ph.D. (Jason Aronson Inc., 1995).

Preserving Jewishness in Your Family: After Intermarriage Has Occurred, by Rabbi Alan Silverstein, Ph.D. (Jason Aronson Inc., 1995). Rabbi Silverstein's two books about intermarriage are presented from the Conservative movement's point of view. The second volume especially has information about conversion.

There are many valuable Introductions to Judaism. For example:

The Book of Jewish Belief, by Louis Jacobs (Behrman House, 1984). Rabbi Jacobs clearly discusses the basic ideas of Jewish thought.
