Just another smart, sweet, accomplished, socially conscious attorney.
You might wonder why I'm "willing to convert," but I attend schul every Shabbos.
Actually, I'm trying to convert, but that's not an option in the drop down box. Briefly, my father was Jewish, but my mother was not. Her mother underwent a conservative conversion when mom was six, but that doesn't count. Nevertheless, my father's parents and mother raised me secular/conservative . In my twenties, I started keeping kosher, then lighting candles on Shabbos. Recently, the disconnect between my observance, and the fact that I'm not halachically Jewish, motivated me to seek an orthodox conversion.
