Conversion to Judaism


"Those who convert to Judaism are also considered 'children of our father Abraham,' for all who keep the Torah are included in his children; Avraham was the first of those to convert.

"It is written: I have made you a father of many nations. At first he was a father to Aram, and now a father to all nations [as they are represented among those who convert to Judaism]."

(Explanation of Rosh to Talmud, Nedarim 31a)

Have a great day,
