Weather: Snowy Plan: Akagi JHS

Today was a regular Monday, but the weekend was busy. We went to a Hanukkah party on Saturday. An ALT friend of mine is marrying a Japanese lady, but he is Jewish so she is going to convert to Judaism. Pretty cool, huh? I think Japanese Jewish people might be pretty rare. They are a great couple, so I believe that they will have a bright future together. Please have a marvelous life together!

  • This is just me, but I hate it when people convert for marriage... You shouldn't convert to a religion unless you actually believe in it.
    • On the other hand, if you don't have any feelings for your religion (including not feeling strongly athiestic) it can and probably will ease a noticeable amount of tension.

      Unless the person converts under the pretense of not caring about their religion, but actually really does. For example, somebody converts to Judaism but still feels strongly that they should keep a Buddhist style altar for their parent. That, then, might be a problem. "I gave up my religion for you!" is the last argumentative bludgeon to put in somebody's hand.

      I think if you can come to terms with a specific religion for how births, deaths and weddings will be handled, it's easier to live in a family with one religion (or none) (and those things are definitely the ones that stick hardest).
      • I'm with Scott on this one. I think it is fine to convert if it means a better relationship with the parents. I don't know this guys parents though. She might be converting out of true interest as well. Goodness knows that converting to Judaism is strongly discouraged, although not denied.
