Just what I'm looking for

My 3 grandsons, born of a non Jewish mother, were converted at 8 months old. The twins just turned nine and younger boys is 6, parents divorced and now they go back and forth between them. Thank G_d they're with my son 2/3 of the time where we can help them understand they are Jewish even when Mommy is giving them Xmas presents. This video is going to help them see the light, literally. Thank you.

Its important to know that they are going to have to convert of their own free will for a real conversion to take place after bar mitzva age at 13 yrs old. Speak to your local orthodox Rabbi for details on what is necessary for it to be done properly. Best Wishes to your family.
