Called the beit din (rabbinical court) again today to follow up after submitting my application, and potentially am meeting next Wednesday, if it works for RNW.
Excuse my while I go and COLLAPSE OF BUTTERFLIES!!!!
Y’hi ratzon mil’fanecha Hashem that everything written in my application packet should be taken as completely sincere, understood in the way that I meant when I wrote it, and that they should see the potential of this neshama I’ve been nurturing for the last few years and be supportive and willing to help me actualize it.
Eating an everything bagel and cream cheese for lunch.
Thinks: oh, man. This really needs lox or something.
I never liked either lox or salmon before.
THAT’S IT, WHERE IS THE MIKVAH LADY BECAUSE CLEARLY I JUST NEED TO DUNK RIGHT NOW, KTHX.

Ok well I was wondering which synagogue(s) you've visited. I went to the Tremont Street Shul in Cambridge for a Kabbalat service and really enjoyed it but they don't have a rabbi (he passed away 9 years ago and they haven't got a new official one). There's a hillel at my campus but I'm not really comfortable going there yet. Also I'm searching for books on religious practice, Hebrew, prayer, and that sort of thing. My interest is conservative or modern orthodox if that helps.
Have you checked out KI (Kehillath Israel) on Harvard Ave in Brookline? Conservative, but on the traditional side — and they do a wonderful learners’ minyan (10 week course that covers Shabbat services in depth, I lived it!). It is a very welcoming community, and a great starting off point.
I’ve also been to the Chai center (Chabad), Chai Odom (very, VERY frum, mostly chassidish), Kadimah Toras Moshe (identifies as Orthodox, but on the liberal/modern side — think short sleeves and uncovered hair during the week), and Adams Street Shul in Newton (traditional non-chassidish), so can answer about those too!
