What part of NC? We lived there when my husband was stationed at Pope AFB. My parents lived there after my father retired from the Army also. We moved back there when my husband retired, so we could help take care of my parents. After they died, we moved here to NH.
How does a Beit din work ,if you’re following a “ unaffiliated “ synagogue? I want to convert Conservative, but I’m wondering how that works . Do all the Rabbis on the Beit din have to be from the same movement?
I hear conflicting reports. I guess it depends on the view points of the movement you ask.
I have tons of books. Most of them are Orthodox or Conservative. I didn’t set out to buy them from any one movement. I just went by descriptions and they just happened to be mainly Conservative or Orthodox.
That’s when I found out about the different movements. I have a few reform books that I got latter and I noticed the difference right away.
Like the prayers and blessings, I’m not comfortable with gender neutral pronouns for G-d. That’s just me though.

It depends on the rabbi and the community.

One of the issues with being an affiliated synagogue is that the rabbis you hire must also belong to the same movement; being unaffiliated allows you hire any rabbi you wish (provided they don't have an issue working for an unaffiliated synagogue).

For high holidays, Chabad is open to everyone.No tickets no anything required. They are very welcoming. You can come and observe, partake, and leave when you want.

Awesome! I would still give them a donation, though.

Thanks , guys. It seems like I was really misinformed, concerning Chabad. I think we’ll check it out, being very close. I know I can’t believe everything , someone online says, but a “ Rabbi” from an online Judaism site told me that Chabad wouldn’t be welcoming to us, until we become officially Jewish, then it’ll be only to convert us to the Orthodox lifestyle.
It didn’t sound right to me, since I have a lot of their material and subscribe to a couple of You Tube sites of Orthodox women and I can’t picture them doing that sort of thing.
A couple of them are super sweet.

I’d definitely give them a donation, especially when they’re not asking for one. Most of them are run by young couples who have a lot of kids. A lot of them are living in poorer countries, doing a lot of good work there.

Oh yeah, forgot to ask, where would I donate to, since I know they don’t carry money then?

ETA: You may already know this, but monetary gifts in multiples of 18 are especially significant in Judaism.
