Illustmaker me

Well, volandum asked for it...

volandum asked about linking to a rant on the term "Jew by choice," which I realized that I don't think I've done.

For those who don't know, in the liberal movements of Judaism, converts are frequently referred to as "Jews by choice."

I am a convert to Judaism. Call me a convert. Call me a proselyte. Hell, if you're Orthodox, call me a shiksa with pretensions. Or just, you know, call me a Jew.

But Jew-by-choice? UGH.
