I was already converting to Orthodox Judaism before I met my husband. Not many rabbis will convert people just because of marriage, you have be sincere and want to convert because of spiritual reasons and not just because you are marrying a Jewish person.
We moved to his grandparent’s in Savyon, Israel and I continued converting there.
The rabbi tried to dissuade me by turning me away because it was his job to do so. He finally saw I was sincere and was not about to give up.
It wasn’t easy or fast. I spent one and a half years living the Jewish life and going to night school, before my conversion was finalized. My studies were about Jewish history and culture, and I learned how to speak Hebrew. After all my studies I had to take a test to see if I had learned what I was suppose to. I had to stand before three court officials and answer their questions about the Halacha. This was exciting and scary at the same time.
Because I did all I was supposed to and passed the test (I got an A), I went through a conversion ceremony and I received a blessing in front of the congregation. I also had to take a ritual bath.
Converting into Judaism is quite different than converting to any other religion and well worth it.
