I am currently converting to Judaism after learning a few years ago that my family had been Jewish before emigrating to America in the early 20th century.I tend to be more introspective and intellectually oriented. I enjoy reading, gardening, healthy cooking, films, and various creative pursuits. I love animals and currently share my life with two ChowChows. I live an eco-conscious lifestyle. I am passionate about animal rights and education issues. I love to travel, enjoy dining out, museums and galleries.
