I enjoyed reading your testimony. My mother, grandmother, great-grandmother and great-great-grandmother were all Jews so the tug to be a Jew has always been a part of my existence, and a struggle at times. Defining myself as a messianic-Jew helps me to manage the matter though it isn’t always easy. At times I find myself living in both worlds simultaneously. But there is no shame in being a Jew yet much peace of mind in being a Catholic. And there you have it.
