Yehuda Ferris

As a Chinese family exploring Judaism, we had been considering conversion for a while when we met Rabbi Yehuda Ferris. He welcomed us with open arms and allowed us to spend as much time with him and his family as possible, which enabled us to see what Judaism stands for through his own behavior and that of his community. He has taken our children in as his own and instructed us on Jewish thought on parenting and ethics, while shielding us from discrimination.
