Is My Toddler More Jewish than Me?


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.
