I Am Missing Something

   by Reb Gutman Locks  

 Lacking Direction


     I am Jewish but my life took me down a different path. My family was raised by strict Jewish parents but since I was raised in USA, they didn't want to raise me as strict. I am a non-practicing Jew and I believe in God and I am married to a Christian and had a child. But ever since I started a new job in an area with a lot of Hassidic Jews, I feel like I am missing something in my life. I don't even know where to start. If I start to follow and study the Torah how would it effect my life. I love my wife and my son. How can I be Jewish without a Jewish family? I feel like I am writing all over the place, but I think you understand where I am coming from.




Shalom J,

     Start to follow the Torah and mitzvot with sincere joy. Discover what it means to be a Jew. Then, when your wife and child see you becoming happier and more fulfilled, they will either say; "This is good. We want it, too." If so, then begin the process of orthodox conversion. As long as the conversion is for Hashem, and not just for you, it will be kosher.

     Or, when they see you beginning to fulfill the Torah and mitzvot they will say; "What is this weird stuff you are doing? We do not want it in our lives," then you will know that it is time to divorce your wife and look for a Jewish wife.

    Hashem bless you to do what is best for everyone.

    Let me know what happens.

    Have a wonderful New Year
