It is cause for celebration throughout the congregation and the Jewish world when an individual chooses to formalize his or her relationship with the Jewish community. Conversion is not something that happens at a specific moment, but is an overall journey during which an individual studies, learns, grows, and experiences all of the richness of Jewish life. The process of conversion can take anywhere from nine months to something far more depending upon the individual. TSTI rabbis are beginning the process with a number of different people at any given time, so please do not hesitate to contact the Temple Office to learn more.
