Reviews

"[Anyone] 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 delightful and helpful parenting guide that tackles obvious as well as difficult issues. . . An important contribution."
--The Jerusalem Report

"Diamant and Kushner help parents raise healthy, happy children with an eye on Judaism's life-affirming traditions and values."
--St. Petersburg Times
