This promo introduces a program in production that explores what motivates men and women to go through the rigorous process of converting to Judaism. We show how it's done and what happens after the ritual conversion. We will also address some of the complicated issues facing the Conservative, Reform and [Modern] Orthodox movements as religious and lay leaders grapple with the question; "Who is a Jew in the 21st Century?"
As far as we know, there is no contemporary video program out there that is completely devoted to telling stories of conversion to Judaism from a pluralistic point of view.
We want to show what becoming a Jew today can mean for the future of the Jewish people. Post a comment here and give us your contact info if you are interested in supporting this production or are interested in being interviewed and telling us your story.
Special thanks to our interviewees Lilli and her mom Kate, Moshe, Cynthia, Kim & Alex and also to Free Music Archive for access to Lee Rosevere's Soulmates mp3
