Are you willing to have your whole life and death to be governed by Halacha
by: Aryeh Meir


Hi there Caroline!

Are you willing to have your whole life and death to be governed by Halacha? Think again. I know a shayner Yid who before to be one took nine long years of learning.

Try to find an Orthodox community preferably with a Bet Din (if not they could refer you to a one later. Make sure you can walk to the shul on Shabbat and Holidays (there may be in your area or you might consider moving).
Write to their Rav about your intent. Prepare for a meeting in which the Rav and maybe some community members might interview you. Find a mentor. They will tell you what do do next.
The Sages say to come close to G-d, come to the Torah scholars.

Hope this helps.
