365 Challenge, Day 38: Temple Micah

When TJ and I began our exploration of Reform Judaism in Orlando, we were advised that, first and foremost, we would need to take an Introduction to Judaism class and find a rabbi to sponsor us on our path to conversion.

Conversion typically occurs when either A) a heterosexual couple is preparing for marriage and one partner decides to share in the other partner's faith, or B) an individual makes the personal choice to convert.

Given our unique situation (dual-conversion, same sex-couple), we knew that we needed to find a unique place to meet our needs in the Metro DC area. And we did.

Temple Micah (One of "America's 25 Most Vibrant Congregations," Newsweek 2009) is a Reform Jewish congregation located on Wisconsin Avenue in Washington, DC.
