Thanks for answering Rebecca. My dad was raised reform (though his parents were orthodox) so i am familiar with what you speak. He didn agree with a lot of things and my parents were married orthodox, but they arent observant and for them its about traditions.

Thankfully they sent me to a jewish day school where i learnt hebrew and judaism. Honestly it saved me from straying. I dont think i would care if i wasnt surrounded by jews.......

I had always wanted more religious observance when i was a child, but that was also due to the fact that my parents were always unhappy. I think Judaism saved me and gave me much needed security so your hubby is correct there :-)

I am striving to become shomrei but i am lacking to commitment and working on it. Its a hard step to take, one that is not grey.... but i am def doing more each year to acheive that commitment.
