ing that church leaders often
censored what appeared to
be questionable mail
Yet the principal quickly
learned of Mordechai's con-
tinuing interest in Judaism,
and of her impending
meeting with a represen-
tative of the Lubavitch
Center.
"He was so angry he was
shaking from head to toe,"
Mordechai says. "He kept
telling me 'You're playing
with fire!' and 'There's
something wrong with your
soul!'"
Though terrified,
Mordechai met with the
rabbi. It was a happy
meeting, she recalls. "I even
laughed -- something I
couldn't remember having
done in years. We had been
taught that laughter was
immodest."
The rabbi wanted to house
Mordechai for several weeks
in a Jewish home. She prom-
ised to call if interested.
When she returned to the
seminary, Mordechai made a
last appeal to Jesus. She
prayed fervently.
"I didn't want a miracle.
All I was asking for was
quiet assurance in the depth
of my soul. I was desperately
searching for anything," she
says.
The principal warned her
she had not repented
enough. He told her she
must give a sermon before
her fellow students.
Mordechai knew it was time
to leave.
With only a five-pound
($7.50) note she had hidden
years ago, Mordechai hid in
an office at the seminary.
She slept there Saturday
night, not wanting to bother
the Lubavitch rabbi on
Shabbat.
On Sunday morning, she
called him. The rabbi's wife
said he was davening.
Mordechai said she would
wait until 9 a.m. The phone
rang at 8:55.
Moments later, Mordechai
was out the door and on her
way to the rabbi.
She ran down the streets.
Faster and faster.
"Something burst from the
depths of my life." She
stopped when she got to his
home.

Afterward, she studied in a
yeshiva in Israel, where she
met her husband. Three
years ago she settled in New
York with her husband and
three sons.
