Dear Rabbi, I have a couple of serious questions that I hope you could answer. I was born Jewish. My mother was Jewish and so was my father. But, I had an absolutely zero Jewish upbringing and was raised extremely secular. I had no Bar Mitzvah or anything at all. As a hereditary Jew, do I have an obligation before God to become religious? Could I follow my own path as long as I followed the Noahide code? Thank you for your time and have a good day.
If you are Jewish then God wants you to investigate your Judaism and to try and become closer to Him. Of course, that is easier said than done! Personally, I would recommend that you read a wonderful book called Gateway to Judaism by Rabbi Mordechai Becher, published by ArtScroll, that will answer all your questions. It is a fascinating and very easy to read "mini-encyclopedia". It is written in an informative and humorous style and it covers the spectrum of Judaism, both the practical side and the philosophical/theological side.
