Question
Hello! I am 13 years old, and have recently decided that I would like to explore Judaism. My grandmother is Jewish, although from my understanding she doesn't practice much anymore. My parents however, raised me to just not have a religion at all. Anyways, I have a few Jewish friends at school who try to help me, but, frankly, I'm lost. I want to have a relationship with G-d, and I have been reciting the morning, afternoon, and evening prayer, along with some prayers for family and praying when I'm anxious/nervous etc., but I don't know how to pray, if there's a limit to how many times a day I can pray, if there's things that I should be praying before (such as eating) etc., so I really just don't know what to do. On top of all this, I haven't told my parents, and I'm really, really scared of how they'll react, or if they'll just think it's a phase of some sort. I don't really know what my plan is, but right now I guess I would just like to be a reform. Also, since my parents don't know, I can't go to a Synagogue or anything.  

Question
According to Halacha, If there are conjoined twins and one wants to convert and the other doesn’t, is it possible for them to convert? The reason I ask is because bodily immersion in a mikvah is necessary to convert, but the Shevuot yaakov ruled conjoined twins are 2 people

Question
I am in charge of signing up new members at the synagogue I attend. The synagogue is in a transition between rabbis now. We are not getting a new rabbi until September and we don’t even know yet who that new rabbi will be. This past Shabbos, a man we saw for the first time ever starting came to services. He says he wants to join as a member. I talked to him on the phone today and he revealed to me that his mother is a convert to Judaism in the Conservative movement, and he had a bris and bar mitzvah. I don’t know if he is really a Jew or not. Can I accept him as a member?

Question
Hello rabbi(s). It is me again. For the last two and a half years, I've been very very drawn to the nation of Israel and the Torah and God. I've even kind of tried to convert to become a Jew several times (but that never went through). As of yet I just keep the seven commandments for the descendants of Noach. I also know that my mother's mother is Italian, and both her father and mother's side (my grandmother's mother is from a town near Rome) have Jewish DNA, according to my grandmother's DNA test. (My father is definitely Jewish, however.) What is your tradition/advice regarding this (ascertaining one being Jewish or not)? Thank you and may God bless you.

Question
I come from Jewish and German heritage, and I've always found myself to be lost when it comes to talking about my family's culture. On my dad's side of the family, my great-great grandfather is descended from Jews. He was not a practicing Jew and neither were his children or grandchildren, but was descended from and was related to other Jewish people. I feel like I don't have the right to say that I'm Jewish, despite having that heritage. I have thought about converting as an adult but I don't know how to go about it. I would like advice as to what to do and how I should go about converting and celebrating my heritage.
