A Community For Jewish Parenting
This community is a place to discuss everything involved in building a Jewish home for one's children. Membership is open to anyone raising a Jewish child, whether or not they themselves (or their partners) are Jewish.
Possible topics of discussion could include, well, anything and everything! What are good Jewish children's books for age x? How do you handle Christmas or Halloween? Bar/Bat Mitzvah ideas and discussion. What about issues with non-Jewish friends and family? How to handle people trying to convert your kid? What makes your child feel connected to Judaism if you don't live in a large Jewish community, or if you don't have Jewish family/friends? What activities did you decide your child needed, even if affording them was a stretch, and what did you decide they could do without? That kind of thing, but anything else you can think of that's unique to parenting a Jewish child.
Your moderators are geminigirl, sonsah, and stickylatex. We will be introducing ourselves shortly. In the meantime, please post an introduction of yourself and tell us about your Jewish family!
