Review quote

"The majority of Jewish readers will find it a delightful and helpful parenting guide that tackles obvious as well as difficult issues. . . Any Jew looking to bring Judaism into his or her family will appreciate page after page of helpful suggestions. Those who already "do" will feel good and strive to do more Jewishly, those who "don't" but are searching can confidently find a point of entry. A book that lets us feel good about ourselves as Jews and as parents is an important contribution."--Howard Blas, "The Jerusalem Report," November 20, 2000 "From the Hardcover edition."
