    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.

    When I was twelve years old, I being unhappy and knew I was born of a sinful nature. Since Adan and Eve brought sin into the Garden of Eden, the sin nature filled the earth and every birth thereafter. I knew that when Jesus returned to earth, He would not know me because I was still carrying that sin. I asked Jesus to come into my heart, forgive me of my sin and dins, send accepted Him as my Lord and Savior. I knew I did the right thing. Then I felt the load of wright being lifted from my spirit and my soul was pure, clean, at peace, and free! My interests became what was Gods interests. I wanted to do His complete will! No church membership could ever do this for me.  Jesus is my faith, my hope, my redemption, and my comfort. This is all it takes, and it means more than the world to me. I go to a church that teaches what I believe, "Jesus is the Way, the Truth, and the Life. No one comes to the Father but by Me!" Read John 3 in the Bible as it will tell you the same thing!

      Your story is not about converting to a new religion. We are born with the knowledge of good and evil, right and wrong, functional and dysfunctional we are not sinful when born we become that way. Paul taught that not Yahshua
