Why Are We Here?

No, we’re not going to start off with existential Jewish philosophy. But we do want to give people an idea of what this blog is about.

We’re here to discuss issues of common interest to Baalei Teshuva and to help Baalei Teshuva from around the world connect and strengthen one another.

This blog and the entire Beyond Teshuva project owes much of its inspiration to the October 2001, “Life After Teshuva” conference held in Passaic, NJ.

We’ll be discussing the scope of the Beyond Teshuva project in the months to come and we’re looking for input from Baalei Teshuva around the world.
