In response to the rising anti-convert trend in the Jewish community - which flies in the face of Jewish law and history - I wrote a song, "The Convert's Quest." I need to raise $2000 to professionally produce the song with my band, Iraqis in Pajamas. Please consider donating, and please additionally ask your rabbi to donate from their discretionary fund, to help us raise our goal.
See the lyrics here , and see the back story here. For more information about my band, check out our music videos, "I Love My JewFro ! " and "Cancer Is My Engine ," and listen to our albums on Bandcamp .
Once the song is produced, my goal is to use to facilitate heart-centered conversations throughout the Jewish community, addressing this issue head-on and turning the tide, so that converts like Ruth - the ancestor of the Messiah - will feel loved and embraced in the Jewish fold.
Please contribute as much as you are able, and share this campaign widely in your circle, make this recording happen!
