Welcome to the Teshuvah Conversion Course

An Entire World

The Talmud tells us that a person who saves one life has saved an entire world.  That’s becuase each person has their own unique legacy – the people in their family as well as all the lives they touch.  When you become a Jew, you are an entirely new world and the beginning of a new legacy.
