I would recommend going to your local JCC and see what courses/literature they have available for people in your situation.

Nope. Conservative (or Masorti in your neck of the woods).

The JCC should be well connected to all the local synagogues and would be very useful in helping you find what you're looking for.

I'd certainly say so, and odds are that the Jew we start out as isn't the Jew we are going up being.
