Hi everyone, I'm new to the forum so I should probably give you some background on my life! I was born into a biracial Jewish family (black and white) but growing up I didn't know much about God at all because I was never taught about him. Then one day when I was twelve my mom, started taking me to synagogue and soon enough it became a regular Saturday ritual. But my Judaism went away when I started reaserching that the modern form of Judaism wasn't the correct one. And soon enough, me and my mom were getting into fights. She would say (and still does say) such awful things such as "Jesus is a magician" and "Jesus is for the Idiots" though I wasn't going to let my mother put me down and I started researching Orthodoxy and I've never looked back ever since.  :)

P.S please Pray for her
