I was raised in a Conservative home in CT and attended weekly Hebrew School. During college in MA, I attended both the Hillel and Chabad houses regularly and went on Birthright. After graduating I was a member of a Reform synagogue where I taught 4th grade Sunday school on the subjects of Israel and the Prophets. After leaving MA, I returned to CT and began attending services at a local Orthodox synagogue. I have since begun to lay tefillin every day and keep a higher level of Shabbat and Kosher observance. I have rediscovered my passion for Torah learning and attend regular classes with my Rabbi. I am looking forward to conversing with the Judiasm Stack Exchange regarding many of the questions that arise during my studies. Thanks!
