You’re not alone.
Inside every baal teshuva and convert is a unique soul that yearns to connect and integrate. That wants that perfect community, rav, rebbetzin, shul, who will welcome them and look after them like the days when they were first becoming religious. Before they were expected to have it all together.
Let’s be completely honest. On one hand, you’re a success story. You were searching, you discovered the truth, adopted the lifestyle, and are living a life of Torah and mitzvot. You’re in.
On the other hand, where exactly do you fit in?
How often have you asked yourself that question?
Once it was not only okay to be confused and searching, but it actually got you attention and praise from the people you most respected. Now it’s just plain embarrassing to not know and to not know who to turn to. And it’s disastrous.
It’s a fact that most baalei teshuva and converts struggle to integrate into the mainstream Orthodox Jewish community. Not after just one or two years either. But down the road, 15, 20, even 30 years, the ripple effect of not having fully integrated into a community can insidiously undermine your home, which means your shalom bayis, children’s education, and most importantly, your ability to transmit Torah values to your children. Everything suffers when you “live the life” without the continuity that stems from community support, outreach, understanding, and guidance.
Does this sound familiar?
Are you still feeling a little shaky about being religious, unclear about a lot of things, worried about how you’re going to transmit this to your children, struggling to keep your marriage together, and overwhelmed by how to pay for it all.
Is this the life you imagined?
Like we said, you’re not alone. These issues affect most people who have chosen the righteous path of Torah observance.
