Thank you for the article. I feel kinda the same way. I never had a birth family (or a real adoptive family either as far as that goes). I grew up in group homes but have always identified as “Jewish” since the day one precious woman (now deceased) took me under her wing and introduced me to the Jewish life. I have no idea if my birth mom was Jewish or not–or my grandmother, or any female in my mother’s line at all–any one of whom would have in fact passed her Jewry on to me. I am kosher-style and keep the mitzvots. I will most likely never have the money to make aliyah, much less move to Israel as a citizen–so I agree, why do I need to convert? I know I am Jewish, so why does it matter if I officially convert or not? Thanks …
