It is not as easy as you think

Funny/not funny that is not really the point. Awareness is. Unless I had experienced it myself I wouldn't believe it either. You would thing the inner struggle and the orientation to a new view of life would be the hardest thing but that is easy compared tio the hurdles that you find yourself up against. People that you don't even know attacking you, no not just people, Rabbis of high standing that don't know you opposing your new found place, even threats of "exposure"; not the warm fuzzy feeling you would expect upon finding your place in a family. Even 20 years later feeling that I have to keep quiet because a very good friend is a good friend with one of those Rabbis that spoke against you. No, it's not easy coming home!

Finding out your a Jew

If someone was already a member of a religion, then finding out they were of another, most would seek out to find out about the one by birth that is considered their religion. If someone grew up in a religion because of their parents choice, made that your choice when young, and you aren't devout in that religion, and then finding out your roots in another religion, probable they wouldn't convert. They are more on the line of secular than religious even if on paper they are a member of a religion. Most would look into it, and then decide which is best for them. The point of the video is the title of the video. If you found out you were a member of another religion would you convert? The guy in the video found out he was a Jew, and proceed to learn what being a Jew was all about. I think the message of this video is saying "Hey there are a lot of people that are Jews, you may not know it yet. When finding out what will you do with that information? We ask you to drop your old religion and come where you belong."

Todah Rabbah. ROFLMAO!

Thank you for finally acknowledging how difficult it is to come back once your family "leaves" judaism or you discover later in life your jewish roots. No matter how many you have or how well you study, it seems that everyone wants to disqualify you after the mikvah and beit din. I was more welcome as a 'guest' than a member of the grand mishpachah. I hope this means people are changing their attitude. ;D

Because we know it does not happen that often in 'real' life, this makes this video hilarious! lol
