Well let's face it. It does take an effort to go. It's not always easy or convenient. I might not have the same experience as Ima - example the Neilah service at the end of Yom Kippur. But what I do get is others who understand. Understand my beliefs, my concerns and a great sense of community.
I too, like Rebecca lost my son. He was stillborn at 22.5 weeks Dec. 5, 2005. It's hard to have faith after such a devastation. But I also realize if it wasn't for my faith and beliefs I would have spiraled much further downward after that loss.
It is with baby steps that you can begin. Go to synagogue one Shabbat a month. Go to Friday night services, if you find they are not for you, then attend Torah Services on Saturday morning. Try different synagogues in your area till you find one that is right for you.
I wish you luck in your quest for faith.
