Raising kids Jewishly adds a layer of responsibility and opportunity to all of the other demands of parenting as parents navigate a wide set of choices about everything from the songs they play during holidays to how they talk to their kids about the Holocaust and antisemitism. For many parents, these aren’t just responsibilities; they’re a Jewish practice in and of themselves as they aim to support their children in inheriting and contributing to Jewish tradition. To explore these ideas, the Shalom Hartman Institute is launching Perfect Jewish Parents, a new show about the joys and oys of raising children Jewishly.
Yehuda Kurtzer sits down with Joshua Ladon and Masua Sagiv, hosts of the Shalom Hartman Institute’s newest podcast, Perfect Jewish Parents, to discuss what inspired this new show about the joys and oys of raising children Jewishly.
