Is My Toddler More Jewish than Me?

By at 12:06 pm

Plenty of people are probably used to their family’s  “Jewishness” level diminishing with each new generation. Grandma and grandpa? Very Jewish. Mom and Dad? Pretty Jewish. The kids? Eh…

There’s a new article up at Kveller by Anna Solomon, who was expecting an “eh” from her 2-year-old but instead got an emphatic “yes!” when it comes to temple services, singing blessings, and the whole shebang.

Read how Anna dealt with a toddler who just may be more religious than herself, and more importantly, learn about why in the world there is a little girl in a lady bug costume above.

    My children attended a Jewish day school, learned to speak conversational Hebrew and became much more educated on Judaic history, culture and practices than their Reform raised mother and non-Jewish father. I am so proud of both my kids for their independent love of Judaism and for their choices to keep Kosher.
