The Reluctant Rebbitzen: Converting into a Secular Family

By James Morgan

Jewish Family & Life (JFL Media), November 2008

The author describes his transition from a lapsed Episcopalian to a religious Jew and rabbi, and the challenges that it posed in his marriage to a Jewish woman who was highly supportive but unmoved by his enthusiasm. He concludes that as a convert, he tries to maintain the sense of awe and gratitude that brought him to Judaism.
