What is your religious background? Raised xtian. Brief detour into messianic xtianity

What brought you to the Torah? Motiviated to learn Hebrew which is why I spent some time with the messianics, but as I learned their background, and true motivations and church history, and bad translations, I left them and xtianity.

Where have you studied Torah? online lectures (Chabad, R.Yosef Mizrachi, R.Tovia Singer, R.David Solomon. Akiva Tatz), attending a Conservative synagogue

What brought you to this particular forum? To discuss Torah, learn about conversion, find out where I need to be.

What part of the world do you live in? Georgia

How shall we address you? (eg: your username, your first name, your title, initials, etc) maxdixie or "Hey, you" (lol)

Even though you have to bag your own groceries? ;)
Glad to know you've travelled home safely. Any action at the airport with the Flytilla?

OK, I'll give it a go.

What is your religious background? Non-Jewish, then religious, then Jewish, then eventually less religious, then more religious again.

What brought you to the Torah? Rabbi Philip Greenberg and his wife, Hannah, with whom I lived for a year when I was at college in Nottingham and Rabbi Greenberg was the Rav there.

Where have you studied Torah? Yeshivat Dvar Yerushalayim. Studied for Semicha [Rabbinic ordination] in Hilchos Aveilus [Laws of Mourning] and Issur v'Heter [Laws of Kashrus] through the Pirchei Shoshanim Shulchan Aruch Learning Program and have almost finished Hilchos Shabbos [Sabbath Laws]. Kira's husband, Yossi, has studied through the same program, but he went on to get Semicha from the Israel Rabbanut.

What brought you to this particular forum? Can't remember. I think it was when I was involved with Project Genesis (now Torah.org) in the translation of the Mishna Berura. The Torah Forms were then under the auspices of Project genesis.

What part of the world do you live in? London, England.

How shall we address you? (eg: your username, your first name, your title, initials, etc) "Yisroel" or "Sir" if you wish.

Anything else - family, etc 3 daughters (2 not married yet!) and 1 son (married) and 3 grandsons and 2 granddaughters, bli ayin hora.
