"I took heart in the story of another convert I’d read about on Kveller. She said it had taken her fifteen years, but she was finally hoping to finalize her conversion process by Rosh Hashanah that year. Most Jewish converts who operate under their own volition wait longer than is necessary. I’m not alone in having taken seven years to formally pursue a conversion process. I’m not alone in trying to make sure that the faith I was raised in really wasn’t the right one. Jewish converts tend to over-think things. But I know that when someone wants to be Jewish, G-d listens. I know that I have a neshema. I feel the call of the nitzotz ha yehudi. "
