Rosh Hashanah Resolution: Making Sure My Girls Know Why We Celebrate

To gear up for the High Holidays this year, we’re asking our writers and readers for their Rosh Hashanah Resolution. Here’s one from our reader Ashley, who lives in Langhorne, PA with her husband and two daughters.

My husband is first generation Israeli and I am a non-practicing Catholic. We have decided to raise our children experiencing both religions, however since my girls attend a private Jewish preschool we have all been more involved in our Jewish faith.

My resolution this year is to make sure our eldest daughter understands her Jewish faith and why we celebrate holidays. Before, we focused on her enjoying the holidays, and now we want her to start understanding why we celebrate them and to be more involved with us.

Previous years we put the girls to bed before starting to celebrate and this year I want them to stay up late and be involved. This year I want to resolve to celebrate our faiths more as a family unit.
