Families and Conversion: A Complex Story

By Toby Kovacs

Jewish Family & Life (JFL Media), November 2008

The author describes his gradual transition to Judaism out of a mainly Christian background. Though he and his wife had earlier believed they could simultaneously observe two religious traditions, once they had two children their desire for a deeper commitment forced them to choose. He describes his conversion to Judaism as a process of rediscovery and reinvention.
