Although Judaism doesn’t actively proselytise, at The Wimbledon Synagogue we welcome people who are interested in the idea of converting.
Although as a religion we do not actively seek converts, we welcome people who are interested in converting to Judaism here at the synagogue. Our Rabbi is also happy to talk with people who have only one Jewish parent or parents in a mixed faith relationship who would like to discuss their children’s Jewish status. There is an introduction to Judaism Course for those interested, in converting.
The Wimbledon Synagogue follows the procedures and regulations of the Reform Beit Din, and it is from that body that applicants who wish to become Jewish will receive their certification, which is acceptable to non-Orthodox communities around the world as the Reform Movement is part of the World Union of Progressive Judaism.
The process of conversion is a journey and it is impossible to say how long it will take. Every person who does it will do so in an ongoing dialogue with the rabbi and with other important people in their lives.
