Welcome aboard.

I have some limited exposure to judaism.

Some years ago, I had an online friend who was both BL and Jewish. But we lost touch years ago and while we were still in touch he didn't have a firm grasp of his religious beliefs yet, he mainly just stuck with traditions for the sake of tradition, not really understanding any of it. So, I didn't really learn much from him.

I am still acquainted with a second generation Messianic Jew. Basically, he is 100% Jewish by birth and ancestry but his father converted to Christianity and brought him up in the Christian faith. Since he is second generation, he doesn't maintain the Jewish heritage though, so I haven't learned much about Judaism from him either.

I also knew one guy who was the opposite. Born and raised a Christian, not Jewish by birthright, but converted to the Jewish faith as an adult. But I lost touch with him shortly after his conversion.

Other than that, I have fond memories of being invited to a Bar Mitzvah when I was a child. I didn't go to the ceremony, just the party part of it, and remember it mostly as the first time I was served alcohol (wine).

Other than movies, tv, and reading, that's all the exposure I have to Judaism. Not a whole lot, but it's something.

Welcome aboard.
