Unless you have Jewish heritage, a rabbi will not confirm you or allow you to be a Jew- you can’t choose to be Jewish.

Have you been baptised and had your holy communion? You can get confirmed at any age we had a 50 yr old in our group doing it

It’s definitely never too late to get confirmed! I got confirmed at 16. I’m sure if you just pop into a local church, and ask about it they’ll be able to tell you more

(I’m talking about my CofE experience which could be different to how Catholics go about it) but I just spoke to the priest at my church (in covid times you may have to find a phone number and ring them up) and said that I wanted to be confirmed, and they mostly sorted it out from there!

They said in the service that there would be upcoming baptism+confirmation services (it's a fairly big church), so I spoke the priest afterwards and they just arranged it, went to a meeting with the other people getting confirmed a few weeks later and then got confirmed a few weeks after that!

I mean you do have to be a Christian to get confirmed in a church, you know that right? You can be a Christian without being confirmed if you don't want to commit to a particular branch of Christianity now
I think Catholicism and the Eastern Orthodox Church are pretty different aren't they? (I am neither so I don't really know tbh )

yeah that's what I mean. I want to be Eastern orthodox but I was baptized catholic. so do I need to be baptized again? I don't think so? do I just phone them/email them?

I’m not sure if other churches do it, depends if it’s Catholicism you’re going into. I didn’t have to study the Bible at all! Obviously it depends on the Church you go to, I’d did mine 2 years ago and I just had to attend about three 2-hour sessions where we discussed the sacraments, some bible scriptures etc. but that was it and it was a lot less than I did for my communion!
