Pergunta

My father’s family is from Poland and my mother’s family are 12 generations in Israel, probably Sephardi. I became religious and go to Sephardi synagogues. I am single. Which customs and halachos should I keep? Sephardi or Ashkenazi? One way or the other in all the laws?? What should I do for Elul?

The rule that I heard in regard to a Ba'al Tshvuah, is that once he is settled down and comfortable with keeping all the required halachot in Shulchan Aruch, he should choose one approach and community that he wishes to follow for the long term, and then keep all the appropriate halachot and minhagim of that community.
