How I Feel About Conversion

Conversion is an incredibly important topic in Judaism, not to imply that the other topics are not as equally important but this one gets a lot of my attention.  I believe that the process of conversion should be open to anyone that feels they are or want to be part of the Jewish people. I also believe that there should be a process for conversion

Conversion should be open to all who want it, if this were the case we might see more thriving in the Jewish community and less stress around,”we are a shrinking Jewish community.” I come from a Jewish community, Congregation Bet Haverim made up of people with very diverse backgrounds and some of those backgrounds did not begin with a Jewish grandfather or grandmother and some did and this is a thriving, and growing Jewish community and I think largely because the community is open to everyone and the Rabbi is open to converting people that want to enter the Jewish community.
