Judaism: End of Month Video

posted by

It’s tradition around here to leave a video of what I’ve been up to all month. Typically I post this vid on the last day of the month, however due to the fact that the last day of April falls […]

Learning From Job

posted by

Few people enjoy tests. In fact, many of us are in the middle of final exams right now and those are never fun. The fact remains however, that much of life seems to be a test. If you prescribe to one of […]

Judaism: The End is Near

posted by

Is it just me or did April just fly by? I can’t believe we’re already in the last week of Judaism, but here we are. Tradition holds that I take this week to reflect on what I’ve learned, what I’d […]

Being Jewish for Easter

posted by

For 28 years, the Easter holiday was standard procedure: visit family, eat a lot, and vaguely remember that Jesus bought the farm, rose from the dead, freaked out one or more of his disciples for 40 days, and started a new religion. This […]

Social Issues: Surviving the Holocaust

posted by

I didn’t want to talk about the Holocaust. In fact, I’ve avoided it for a few days now. The attempt however, is both unfair and futile. How does one avoid one of the greatest blights in human history? You can’t, […]

Pesach at the Bowens’

posted by

Shalom folks! Today I thought I’d share a few photos and experiences of Pesach here in the Bowen home. I was invited to attend two different Pesach seders, however my wife’s work schedule made it impossible for me to attend. That’s […]

Passover

posted by

Pesach (Passover) is arguably the most important Jewish holiday. Beginning at sundown on the 15th day of the Jewish month of Nissan (that’s April 18th for us this year) and lasting through the 22nd, Pesach marks the evening in which […]

The Jewish Stream

posted by

Michael J. Solender, my Jewish Mentor, could see the confusion on my face as I tried to follow four simultaneous conversations going on…in the library, and not quietly. This exchange included an older gentleman from South Africa, a young lady (probably late […]

Andrew the Ascetic?

posted by

Reality check, 1…2…3. I wasn’t sure what to write about for today’s post until I showed up for my math class last night. In case you’re new around here, I’m also a “non-traditional” college student. As soon as I walked […]

Food: The Glue of Jewish Culture

posted by

Three aspects serve as the cornerstones of Jewish life: Torah, Family, and Food. Indeed, food is the glue that ties the Jewish people together and likely to be the focal point of any social gathering. What strikes me most about the culinary […]

The Holy Struggle: Jacob

posted by

Project Conversion is the study of struggle and serendipity. Much of what has transpired was unexpected and unintended. This has been a blessing, and I am thankful for these lessons, however there is one post I have anticipated and looked forward […]

Keeping Shabbat

posted by

“Remember the sabbath day, to keep it holy. Six days thou shalt labor and do all thy work; but the seventh day is a sabbath (rest) unto the Lord thy God, in it thou shalt not do any manner of […]

Drunk-Dialing God

posted by

We’ve all heard the saying, “The road to hell is paved with good intentions,” and the last three months have taught me that hell is a state of mind in which your soul is in anguish due to separation from […]

My Day in the Jewish Life

posted by

This wasn’t an easy post to prepare for. There is no more a “typical Jew” than there is a typical American. Jews themselves are difficult to define. Are they a race, a religion, a culture, a nation, just a bunch of […]

Weekend With My Jewish Mentor

posted by

No journey is complete without a map, and that is exactly what Michael Solender is for my month with Judaism. From the moment I stepped out of my car after a 2 1/2 hour trek to meet him, Michael had […]

Shalom everyone and welcome to Month Four of Project Conversion: Judaism! Today’s post will be short as it’s about 4 A.M. and I am preparing to visit my Jewish Mentor, Michael Solender. Michael lives in Charlotte, NC which is about […]
