Dating women from israel

A “goya” is female who doesn’t have Jewish roots–which is kind of derogatory term but let’s not get into that right now.You are proud like a peacock – you finally found someone who accepts you the way you are, you fall in love, you start to make some plans and then BAM!

It’s not that they didn’t mind me being a Christian; they were atheist and didn’t care about religion at all.None of them cared about my religion or knitting skills.Unfortunately, soon enough life showed me that they were rare exceptions.I was living in this kind of bubble for a long time and I was very surprised when I moved to Israel a few years later.When I became a single and started to date other Israeli men, I realized how connected they were to their mothers and the important role that religion played in their lives.You can’t do anything about your roots and religion (or the lack of). Maybe you’ve decided that you want to convert to please the family (mostly the mother) of your loved one.

Eventually, the polite talk will get stuck on one and only one subject – conversion. In the worst case scenario, in the eyes of a very religious Jewish mother, even conversion won’t make you good enough for her son. Maybe you even started to believe in Judaism or have found some other important reason to convert. Well, the Jewish mother has tons of qualities that you don’t have.

But, during dessert, she will start asking difficult questions.

It doesn’t matter how smart you are and how lovely your answers are.

Yet, it is one of the most challenging ones, as well.

Being with an Israeli man means facing religious differences so I sincerely recommend that you state your needs and feelings regarding this subject before getting into a serious relationship.

I’ve been living in Israel for almost three years but I’ve been connected to this sunny country for more than that.
