    "The Japanese Ministry of Health, Labour and Welfare defines hikikomori as people who refuse to leave their house and, thus, isolate themselves from society in their homes for a period exceeding six months"

    So guys, I have a simple question. How much am I pissing off the man upstairs by not going to my local synagogue? Can one be a conservative Jew, and be reclusive? If so, what would you recommend for personal practice, because honestly this has been knawing at me for awhile now.

    Thank you for your time

    What made you connect a bureaucratic definition from one land, when "recluse" would work, and not going to temple?

    What phase of life are you? Are you bar/bat mitzvah?
    Are you married or parenting?

    What would be your reasons to go to temple?
    Do you pray at home? Do you have a siddur?
    Do you "attend" or learn via websites?

    What led you to THIS website?
