Hey mommies,

Can I join you here? I wasn't sure if I could because I am not technically Jewish, but my parents, grandparents and my entire family is, so I am from a Jewish background. I also lived in Israel for 7.5 years and know A LOT about Judaism, life in Israel, speak Hebrew, and so on. I love Jewish traditions, and holidays, and people!!!

But I am not Jewish... so I am cautious. But I really want to talk about Judaism and practices and all that stuff because I love it regardless. So I hope it's ok.

BTW, I am Julia, mommy to Natasha 7.5 months. I post a lot in the Sept 06 PR (Hi Randi and Stacy!), but want to expand to other JM boards. Hope to get to know you!

Julia.

Welcome. You sound like you know more about Judaism's then me. I don't speak or read Hebrew and I have never been to Israel. Just out of curiosity why are you not Jewish?

Well, it's a long story but I converted to the Catholic faith. I love Judaism a lot, but my husband is Catholic, pretty devouted, and I just got really drawn to that faith and wanted to raise my daughter in a household that has 1 religion and not 2... kwim? But I still love Judaism and want her to be familiar with her heritage, the holidays, the traditions, and so on. My family is very reform Jewish, sometimes I don't even think they believe in God, but they identify themselves as Jewish. They follow some traditions like the "fun" ones, i.e. eating jelly donuts for Hannukah, honey bread for Rosh-Hashana, Humentash for Purim, and so on. But they don't attend synagogue, read the Torah, none of that.
