Hits of the Week from Kveller: Jan 7th – 11th

This week’s most popular posts from Raising Kvell, in case you missed them.

– Ban the Bar Mitzvah: A Rabbinical Student Rethinks the Time Honored Ceremony. Patrick is a rabbinical student who thinks that bar/bat mitzvahs no longer “work,” and he offers a new idea of his own.

– Mixed Marriages-Vegetarian and Carnivore Edition. What happens when a vegetarian with vegan aspirations marries a meat-eater? How will you raise the kids?

– A Soviet Immigrant Mom’s Take on the Russian Adoption Ban. Alina immigrated from Russia when she was a child, so she has a special perspective on the recent adoption ban, which she calls “indefensible.”

– I Had to Stop Breast Feeding and I’m Relieved. When Jordana got a sinus infection she had to take an antiobiotic that required her to stop nursing, and though she felt some guilt, it was also a big weight off her shoulders (or her chest, actually).
