Hi,

Thanks for making this wonderful forum available.

I’m a gioret (convert) and my children are FFBs, as is my spouse. When my oldest, who is three, came home from Yeshiva saying something he learned about “Goyim”, I shuddered. As I was processing all this it dawned on me that I would have to explain to him one day that my parents (his grandparents) are not Jewish.

When and how should I go about explaining this to him? I’m also concerned he’ll be bullied because of my background, especially if he starts talking about it at his Yeshiva. What do you suggest?

Thanks in advance
