I’m new to the Yeshiva World News Coffee Room (just heard about it from a friend), and I was very excited to discover that there is a Jewish website out there, that has forums for us to post questions, stories, and get insight from others.
I recently came back from a two week trip to Israel. It was truly an incredible and inspiring experience. I started to think about religion.
I come from a family who never practiced Judaism. On my own, I have decided to pursue a more religious life, and learn about the many things Frumkeit has to offer.
It’s been a month or so since I have started thinking and acting in this way. I feel lost sometimes, as if I am doing things incorrectly. I have met with a wonderful Rabbi who suggested I take things slowly.
Anyone have advice/tips on what I should focus on first, and perhaps books I should read to help me on this journey. (English based books, I do not read Hebrew as of yet)
Thank YOU for reading my post, and I hope to get some helpful feedback from the Yeshiva World members.
