Mikveh Day – Post 1

So here it is.

The day of my conversion. Up at ridiculous-o’clock because I can’t sleep.


Haven’t seen a dawn for a while. In particular, haven’t been this excited to see dawn in a while.

Today I will go to the mikveh, which in our community involves a trip to the local rockpool. Luckily for me and the toddler it is going to be a very warm day. Think 37 degrees celsius.

Today I will become officially Jewish.

I have heard other people say they felt terrified, or even dissociated at this point. I feel super-duper excited.

Personally I don’t have any doubts that this is what I was always meant to be, I don’t feel as though I am leaving behind anything, but that I am gaining an inheritance that was always there, finally claiming a part of who I was always meant to be.

I just hope there’s not too many people at the beach today…
