To become a Ger, a Jewish convert, is by no means easy. It cannot be otherwise, considering the giant leap of spirit involved. How tragic it is, therefore, when an individual is motivated by a gnawing inner search for truth strives for but fails to reach this lofty pinnacle. This can happen because the aspiring Ger is insufficiently versed in the conversion procedure. It often happens because he has been misguided by pseudo-clergymen or Jewish groups estranged from authentic Torah practices. The purpose of this book is to spare the Ger the heartache, disillusionment and shock of discovering that he has gone through all the motions of conversion, but has not moved an inch towards authentic conversion. This slim volume also includes and inspiring outlook on the Ger's monumental achievement and the esteemed status with which the Torah regards him.
