new Jew

Shalom Rabbi

Just a very quick line to say, I appeared before the Reform Movement Beth Din on Thursday in London, and today I had the great honour of making my first ever Aliyah to the Torah. Yes, today I am a Jew.

This journey, which is only just beginning, is in no small part inspired by your videos on YouTube and the encouraging e-mails you took the time to send me.

As we end the week in which we remembered the six million Jews who perished in the Shoah, and the week the Prime Minister of Iran launched the latest attack against the most peace loving (and persecuted) race on earth, I feel honoured to have joined their number.

Thank you for the work do. Long may you continue.

G-D bless you.
