Shalom Haverim yeqarim.
I have long desired to share with you my pre and post conversion experience. I am no longer able to hold back from sharing my story. Why have I withheld it thus far? The matter I will touch on in this post will explain. It concerns an issue that was unjustly used against me both before and after my conversion. Therefore, I can truthfully share my conversion experience with you only after first introducing you to this other major aspect of my life:
I am a serious Torah observant Jewish convert, and I’m homosexual.
Now, before you freak out, let me reaffirm to you that I fully embrace the Torah’s 613 commandments as explained by Haz”al, and I’m not excluding Lev. 18:22 from that number. I neither condone nor engage in anal sex, and I am against the promiscuous lifestyles of gays and straights alike in pop culture.
