hi! i was raised in a chabad community. my household was never strict though, my parents only became orthodox around my bat mitzvah and none of my other family are orthodox. i want to get into reconstructionism, humanism, and judaism-informed communalism as well :3
@sobb1ng: start by reading on My Jewish Learning, and then reach out to a local Rabbi to schedule up a meeting. The Rabbi will be able to direct you to more information, open up learning opportunities, and answer any questions. They'll also be able to give you a sort of overview on what the process looks like.
