I think I once wrote this (maybe with a different..)
What I would do? I’d bring a korban to HaShem – a perfectly permitted and most meritorious thing a non Jew can do. And a Jew nowadays cannot.
Then I’d make a dash for Beis Din.January 29, 2014 5:24 pm at 5:24 pm #1010388WIYMember

Coming from non — observant background it is very hard to give up most of worldly indulgences. Nevertheless, I do observe some commandments — I mostly observe Sabbath (do not use electricity, computer, do not write, do not use hot water). I observe most of kashrut and say some prayers.February 2, 2014 5:30 am at 5:30 am #1010408

@DaasYochid, stawberries not kosher?February 5, 2014 4:09 pm at 4:09 pm #1010418
Strawberries are Kosher
The issue they are debating is the Bugs that infest the strawberries and what is required to get rid of them since the Bugs are not Kosher and How big or small the bugs are
(Bugs you can see with your naked eyes are not Kosher, Stuff Like Protozoa which require a microscope you dont need to worry about)February 5, 2014 4:23 pm at 4:23 pm #1010419☕ DaasYochid ☕Participant

If I found out such a thing, I know what Id do, Id keep a secret. I know people who were in such circumstances and they were all of a sudden treated very differently by the community, they were suddenly shunned and treated as person non grata and even after the problem was fixed, hurt feelings do not go away so easilyMarch 31, 2014 4:34 pm at 4:34 pm #1010426ben_DavidParticipant

I would probably wait a bit before converting, to make sure I’m not just doing it because I can’t imagine not being jewish. I’d want to be jewish because of the special kesher with Hashem, not just because I can’t imagine life any other way.April 1, 2014 1:18 am at 1:18 am #1010429questions101Member
