I’m a 20-something from the San Francisco Bay Area. I went to college in Arkansas and Argentina and grad school in New York and D.C. before returning home.
I took 10 years and I worked with 4 rabbis, but I eventually acquired official status within the Hebrew tribe on the 15th of Iyar, 5771, the 30th day of the Omer. This blog documented the process of attending a class and meeting with my sponsoring rabbi, as well as many of my frustrations and joys as I integrated into the Jewish community. Now I use it to record my life as a Jew.
I love Latin America, sound human development public policy, cooking, games, and words. I welcome comments or questions about my conversion process on my blog or via e-mail at mikvahorbust [at] gmail.
