It was very difficult to find a way for me to convert to Judaism. We had almost given up, when we by chance happened upon Rabbi Alpern’s website. After I spoke to Rabbi Alpern, I immediately knew that I wanted to go through the study and guidance under him. Rabbi Alpern gave me plenty of support, encouragement and an interesting study list, in the year following up to my conversion. The conversion itself was a very special and meaningful experience, and our Jewish wedding was a beautiful, joyful event that we will remember for the rest of our lives.

We are very happy to be part of Rabbi Alpern and Karen’s multi-cultural congregation.
