Aaron was born to a Jewish father and a Gentile mother, but grew up going to synagogue. However, after his bar-mitzvah he slowly began to separate from religious life. This was partly due to the lack of community and connection he felt in his synagogue.
In college he became friends with some Christians, and although he was not immediately convinced of anything pertaining to Jesus, he began to see Him in a favorable light.
Weeks after a shooting at his school, Aaron sensed a desire to go with his friends to church and learn more about Jesus. He began to attend a Bible study and was more convinced that what the Scriptures have to say about Jesus was true. He also found the community and fellowship he was searching for.
