I would like to convert to Judaism, but my fiance is not Jewish and is not interested in converting. He is very supportive of my choice and is willing to raise any children we may have Jewish.
I keep hearing that this will be impossible, but I read on the website of the Union for Reform Judaism that the reform movement does indeed allow this. So it seems like it is up the individual Rabbi?
I live in an area where there is only one reform synagogue for a long ways. I haven't contacted them yet and I'm nervous about doing so because I feel like this is my 'one shot' so to speak.
So I have several questions:
Has anyone on here converted in this situation? If so, were there any objections or concerns raised by the Rabbi and how did you answer them? Are there many Rabbis that do a conversion like this? What can I say to make it clear that I am serious and committed and that having a non-Jewish spouse is not going to interfere with me practicing Judaism?
Any advice would be much appreciated. I live in Sweden, by the way.
