I have followed the paths of Judaism for 8 years now. Can I properly convert to judaism?
If you have studied Judaism and followed its path for 8 years, then you know well that Judaism is a religion of deed, and not of faith alone, and being Jewish involves a serious commitment to a broad range of laws and ordinances that cover every aspect of human behavior.
Becoming a Jew also implies a change in one’s very essence, and it requires careful thought, and much motivation, even after the basic “knowlege” of Jewish principles and law is acquired.
If you are prepared to follow the route to conversion, your years of preparation will surely suffice for the technical start you need, and I recommend you get in touch with the nearest beit din you know (Court of Jewish Law), or with a local orthodox rabbi who will advise you further.
May God guide you on the path of truth.
