The following are the words written by a sister who wants to remain anonymous.
"A dear friend of mine just e-mailed me your article from Deseret News about the Jews and Mormon gatherings in Salt Lake City. I was so amazed reading this wonderful article. I have been a member of the LDS Church, this year will be 40 years, and during this entire time I have not met a Jewish convert to the church. I was so excited to read about this organization and would like to get in contact with some Mormon Jews. I live in Orange County, California. Would you be so kind to e-mail me this information..
"Through doing my family genealogy I found out that I am a direct descendant of King David. On my fatherís side I am related to the Lurie rabbinical line. I have done by genealogy back to 600 A.D. and have done over 500 names of my descendantís temple work. I have stories to share with my conversion. I am from the tribe of Levi and Judah. I had the same feelings when I became a member of the LDS church I was home at long last.
"I have a lot on the line revealing my name. I lost my family once when I joined the LDS Church and finally regained my family ties back after many years. Aside from doing much family genealogy going back to 600 A.D. I donít know quite how to handle this coming from a renown rabbinical line. I have no problem telling my story individually.""
