Reform Judaism/interest in Judaism
I recently had my DNA done through my maternal line, and found out that I am an Ashkenazi Jew. I was raised Catholic by my parents. I have recently started self study and reading about Judaism and am very interested in starting formal study for possible conversion. Unfortunately, there are no synagogues in St George Utah. The closest would be in Nevada.
Who would I contact to find out what I need to do to move forward in studies and possible conversion? Can I do studies online? Do I need to have a Rabbi to sponsor me?
I would probably prefer a Reform Judaism direction. My additional question is; would I be considered to be a Jew through maternal DNA? Or a non Jew? And would Reform Judaism accept me as a convert?
That is, Union for Reform Judaism, and ask for assistance there. http://urj.org/about/contact/
