Dream Examples

Example: Boy help! boys please answer this too!?

ok sooo im going to a bar mitzvah tomorrow night. Its just a party, and 2 guys are having the party together. One of the guys having the bm is one that ive like for 2 almost 3 years...what do i do? im really excited but im also really nervous... i really like him..but hes kinda popular at my school and im not...soo i gues thats just how things work at my school...and he has noooooo clue that i like him!

OK, play it cool. Don't be painfully shy, but don't use this as a time to make your move. He may be a man now, but only for reading the Torah! Nobody's going to get married tomorrow.

What do the two of you have in common? Do you go to his religious school? A lot of this depends on how often you will see him outside the party.

When I was of Bar Mitzvah age, I remember this one girl I was seriously crushing on. Dating was not realistic at the time, getting in a dance or two with her was certainly within the realm of possibilities.

Do you have the same set of friends? Will there be other
Bar/Bat mitzvahs or other parties you'll both be at?

In other words, keep your eyes both on the present but also down the road. Go for a small gain, one at each party perhaps.

This fellow seems like a distant target. It all depends on your likelihood of running into him again. If yes, then by all means do something. If no, do a little (maybe a dance) and be happy with that - for now.

Will you go to the same High School?


Example: How much $$ is an appropriate amount to give kids for their confirmation?

We are attending a luncheon for our friends who are raising their kids in both their respective religions, Jewish and Catholic. My husband and I disagree about how much money to gift them. They are 10 and 12.

Example: I don't want to be Jewish?

My parents are Jewish, but I don't want to be Jewish anymore. They force me to attend Bar/Bat Mitzvahs and go to Sunday school. The Jewish faith, or any faith, has no meaning for me. My parents believe that because I am still a teenager, I can't make my own decisions.
What do I do?

Example: Converting to Judaism for marriage?

This question is a hard one to answer, but I'll try put it as simply as I can:

I was born to Christian parents in Africa. My parents are a little religious but very accepting. They are more spiritual if anything. I remember when I was about six my Dad would take me to learn about different religions on weekends - from Mosques to Hindu temples to Synagogues. He believed I should make up my own mind about it all, which I am very grateful for. So basically - both my mother and father grew up with Christianity but are more spiritual than anything - they believe in "God" - but not a strictly Christian one, just the idea of one. Basically halfway between being religious and being agnostic I guess. I am the same really, more Agnostic and spiritual than anything. I pick and choose things from different religions (such as morals) and live the way I see fit to, which I believe (and my parents believe) has been very wholesome and satisfactory.

My fiance - was born in Israel to a Jewish mother and an Irish (Catholic) father who converted to Judaism for marriage. They had 3 children together (my fiance included). My fiance's mother died when he was 3 years old, and his father remarried a Moroccan Jewish woman, who he is still with today and has had 3 more children since with. They are not kosher - they eat a crapload of bacon actually! Haha. But they still celebrate Jewish holidays, but they do not practice virtually any religious practices apart from having Bar/Bat Mitzvahs and all that.

So, upon the whole notion of us getting married - my fiance's step mother has been talking to him a lot about me converting to Judaism. Apparently this is also important to his older sister (who still lives in Israel but is an avid Atheist) - because me converting would be so our children can be Jewish (which I have no problem with, as I intend my children to make up their own minds about religion although don't mind if they grow up with Jewish family values, etc.) and to "be respectful" to his dead mother who was Jewish.

Now, I can understand that me being Jewish might be important if say, they were religious too. But they're not. I felt pretty insulted that my fiance's older sister, who is a very firm atheist, had the nerve to tell me I had to convert when she did not care for the same religion herself. It just made no sense to me.

I've thought about converting too, but another thing that bothers me is that I don't want to have to lie about all this. I think the Jewish faith is a lovely one - and I love being "one of the Jewish family" and celebrating traditions and things with them. I'd love to carry on those traditions with my own children - but does that really mean I have to actually convert for that? I would feel like I am lying to myself. While it is a great faith, it is not one that I intend to convert to. My fiance is agnostic and openly doesn't care for the Jewish faith and admits that the only reason I'd be converting would be for "his family" and not for him.

I know that even though he is not religious, it would mean a lot to him because it would kind of show I'm willing to accept him and his family... But can't they understand that it upsets me that they're not willing to accept ME as I am? My parents are so openly accepting of my fiance and wouldn't dream of making him convert to any religion.

I teasingly suggested that if I had to convert to Judaism, he could get Christened so we would both kind of commit to one anothers religious backgrounds if you will. He laughed and said his step-mum (because his Dad is so Irish it's not funny, and doesn't care an inch for religion) would think he's gone out of his mind, but he would do it anyway for me. I said to him "I can understand why you might feel weird doing it because you don't believe in it, but that's the way I would feel converting to Judaism."

What do you guys think? Any suggestions? I'm not really sure what to do, haha.
