CONVERSION IS PRIVATE!!!!

My friend Hadassah, who is an awesome daily blogger, just wrote a post defending converts and their right to privacy.

Please visit the post, it’s called “Conversion is Private” and please weigh in with your personal thoughts. Especially if you agree or disagree!

In my responses, I mentioned Jews of color, including converts of color, and the fetishizing and exotification and downright objectification of converts in general but also why and how, through personal anecdotes, many of us aren’t treated as ordinary Jews on a day to day basis.

We are always talking about how we need people discussing this issue so let’s go!
