So I sent my rabbi an email asking him if we could discuss setting my dunk date at our next regularly schedule meeting, i.e. today. My sister will be in town one weekend in June that just happens to fall around Shavuot, which is one of my favorite holidays.
So, in my mind, it would be perfect if my entire family could be there to see me become a Jew, and if I could do my kabbalat ol ha’mitzvot together.
I’m hoping my rabbi agrees, and thinks I am ready or will be ready. I feel kinda ballsy even asking this of him. It’s not my usual nature to advocate for myself like this.
I hope I don’t fall flat on my face.
