Raising your Jewish/Christian Child
How Interfaith Parents Can Give Children the Best of Both Their HeritagesBook - 2001
In this completely revised, second edition of the "thoughtful and pioneering guide" (Library Journal), Lee Gruzen tackles the problems and challenges of blending both Jewish and Christian faiths into the lives of children of interfaith marriages.
Based on hundreds of interviews, as well as the author's extensive research and personal experience, this acclaimed book discusses many issues important to interfaith families: talking with children about God, planning ceremonies, celebrating holidays, establishing healthy relationships with grandparents, developing a sense of self and belonging, and more. Written with honesty and warmth, it offers a wealth of insight into the complicated feelings and loyalties that parents, children, grandparents, and clergy bring to the subject of raising Jewish/Christian children.
