This is an encouraging message also for those who wish to convert to Judaism , because we are often warned by others that converts will be made to feel like a second class citizen , or not even seen as Jewish, even if you are observant and sincere. The message demonstrates that on a personal level, people do appreciate the convert's effort and sincerity.
It is always interesting to read about the non-Jewish spouse wanting to become an observant Jew and her non-Jewish family being very supportive, but the Jewish side oh the family and the husband not being too enthusiastic about it. It seems to be quite common. But it also has good outcomes for the whole family. Thank you for another great story.

Post the info please.

Perhaps Lori can add the info about her classes to her biography if Aish allows it, as it is news to me. I know the Chabad children who live here are home schooled, and they have classes on the internet for the Chabad children around the world so that their classmates are in Argentina and England and all over the world. They have cameras on their computers so that the teacher can see them and once there was a problem with a computer and the little girl took the camera and pointed it at her keyboard and showed the adults how to solve the problem. They can fly to visit each other on holidays. So while everyone talks about education in the future, Chabad is at the cutting edge. The important thing is to fight for keeping the option of home schooling alive because it is being outlawed in Europe and seen as child abuse, and religious communities are feeling more and more pressed by what is being taught and not taught in the schools, and even who can be accepted into programs here in the US which have licensing at the end, because they are not PC. When the law courts were in England the equity system grew up as an alternative. Then the legal system absorbed the law of equity.Similarly in Judaism there was tension between the Hasids and the Mitnagim. (I don't particularly like that term) but they worked it out. Granted not having a camera has an aspect of liberation. Afterall Judaism is about "hearing" more than seeing.
