We all know how important it is to have a Rav for halacha (Jewish Law questions) and hadracha (general life direction questions). The question is how many of us have a Rav? Here are some of the issues we face:
1) BTs usually don’t have a family Rav from their parents.
2) Good Rebbeim who know BT issues are busy
3) We often feel uncomfortable introducing ourselves and asking them our basic questions.
4) It’s hard to cultivate that personal relationship, and for women it’s extremely difficult since they don’t have the repeated contact at davening.
