To LaNita,

I am greatly disturbed by the situation you described in your post.  Your ex-boss clearly violated Jewish Law (which prohibits physical contact with any woman other than immediate family members), so calling him Orthodox is a relative term that is not 100% accurate.

You were right in resisting his advances.  In terms of developing a relationship with him, as a Jew, he would only be able to marry you if you converted to Judaism, but Judaism frowns upon conversion solely for the sake of marriage.

If your interest in Judaism has been perked, and you would like to study Jewish belief and practice because you feel that this is the true path to serving G-d, you may be considered a candidate for conversion.  This is a long and difficult process, which involves months of study with an Orthodox Rabbi.

You may end up being disappointed after enduring a grueling process, so you might want to end your relationship with your former boss altogether.

Wishing you all the Best,

Rabbi Hershel Reichman
