Reviews - What do customers think about To Raise A Jewish Child: A Guide For Parents?

Helps for making informed choices  Jan 1, 2004
I have converted to Judaism in order to have a single faith marriage. Though this books additudes were a bit outdated towards interfaith relationships and does not recognize the wide spread intermarriage phenomenom, the author has a good handle on the issues affecting the Jewish identity. It is a very conservative approach to raising your child with a Jewish Identity, with a focus on early religious/cultural training.
Not just for parents -- a must-read for any serious Jew  Jan 9, 2001
This book has had more impact on me than any other one book on any Jewish subject.

I myself went to afternoon Hebrew schools, and was nodding throughout Donin's discussion of why they are so ineffective. My two kids are now in Jewish dayschools, and hopefully will be for the rest of their educational lives.

If you're worried that your kids will either turn out "too Jewish" or "not Jewish enough," this book will alleviate fears and provide an accessible path to creating a Jewish way of life that resonates with your own level of spirituality and committment.

Whether or not you have children, if you hope to be part of a Jewish community, this book is a warm and heartfelt starting point.

A MUST read for everyone who is dealing whith the infinite steps that should be climbe, during the raising of a jewish child, as she (he) should be raised.
