For Hey Alma!: Advice Column Response

I write for the online magazine Hey Alma!, and, as a convert to Judaism (read more about my journey HERE); I was thrilled when their new advice column took on a question from a fellow convert. The letter writer was feeling uncertain whether they should disclose that they weren't born Jewish.

The response by the editor and Hey Alma! community were so supportive! However, as someone with lived experience as a convert, I know that finding your footing in Jewish spaces isn't always quite as simple as the column suggested.

Hey Alma!'s editor, Vanessa, was gracious enough to let me write a response to the column, which you can find HERE.

Thanks for reading, and for my fellow Jews-by-choice who helped me out!
