Thank you for your interest in our program. We are delighted to help you explore the possibility of conversion to Judaism. Our mandate is to give you the support you need and treat you with absolute dignity and sensitivity. We hope you find your experiences with the program enlightening and meaningful.
Conversion is more than a course of study; it requires a serious, life-long commitment. Successful candidates - and their partner, if applicable - will undergo a personal religious transformation and sincerely commit themselves to being Jewish and living an Orthodox Jewish lifestyle. In addition, successful candidates are expected to have integrated socially into an observant Jewish community where they will find the social support necessary for future Jewish growth.
This program is an official Member of the Rabbinical Council of America Geirus (conversion) Policies and Standards (GPS) Network (official website).
We look forward to supporting your journey to a Jewish life.
