I guess I became straight by accident. It was never a grand plan; the therapy was an attempt to resolve commitment issues, rather than sexual identity. I never had any desire to change my sexuality. But that's what happened – in fact I changed everything.

Having had hundreds of homosexual partners, I eventually married a woman and had a child. And my whole outlook on life changed. I grew from a loud and arrogant person, trying desperately to mask my deep insecurities in group situations, into a strong, assertive guy ... At the age of 46, I've never felt better in my own skin.

But before we get into the details of my conversion, let's go back to the beginning. 

In 2007, JONAH established a separate division, The Jonah Institute for  Gender Affirmation, to provide research and clinical strategies for growth out of homosexuality.  Jews are obligated to reach out and serve the entire community under the principle of tikkum olam (working together with G-d to heal and perfect the world); simultaneously we are commanded to avoid proselytizing while offering such help. In this respect, both JONAH and the new Institute differ from most other faith-based ministries because we assist non-Jewish individuals and families in a manner which will not threaten their personal religious or secular beliefs.

 
As a non-profit organization, JONAH strives to help others through the generosity of its supporters, officers and members.
