i suppose that is how i would describe it... i have recently felt very drawn to Judaism, but feel very conflicted about it in a way. i was raised in and am currently part of the Armenian Orthodox Church and as much as i appreciate it and love the ritual of it, i don't really get much out of it. the services are in Armenian which i only have a cursory understanding of at best. the sermon is in english, but that's it.
in an effort to be respectful of my husband and his beliefs i began taking our ds to various activities at a local synagogue from the time he was about 9 months old, there i found friends and a sense of community that have never known in my church.
I guess i feel like embracing my interest in Judaism would be like letting my own heritage slip away.
i am wondering i guess how to balance or reconcile this. or how i can pass on my heritage, which is DEEPLY rooted in Christianity while exploring my interest in another faith.

i did thank you! i will give it a try. it is the Armenian culture i am most interested in preserving, the issue is that the religion and the culture are practically one and the same...

I know that some synagogues have classes for people who want to learn more about Judaism. Maybe you could sign up for some classes to at least learn more about it.
