The Way of the Chosen People
Each movement within Judaism has its own requirements and
there is much to learn if you wish to convert. This page offers a bit of information on where to begin the process. The numbers of people converting to Judaism is higher today than it has been in hundreds of years.
"Christians in the American hinterlands are converting to Judaism. And it's not because they are marrying Jews."
An excellent article by Sue Fishkoff of Moment Magazine
Go to : The Conversion to Judaism Resource Center.
The Center provides information and advice to people who are considering converting to Judaism and to those who have converted.
This is a great site for those interested in learning more about Judaism and whether or not it is for them. There are several short articals on many related topics that should help to clarify key issues and questions of prospective converts.
This site is written predominantly from the Orthodox viewpoint, because the author believes that is the starting point for any inquiry into Judaism. As recently as 200 years ago, Orthodoxy was the only Judaism, and it still is the only Judaism in many parts of the world. Be aware, however, that many Jews do not follow all of the traditions described here, or in the precise form described here. It is nonetheless a great place for easily understandable accurate information!
