such things present too many problems and explain the problem of the vanishing Jew

Such a great article…extremely on target about the emotion and perceptions of this challenging topic. I am a non-Jew mother raising my kids Jewish (after attempting to convert for 2 – 3 years and not feeling like myself). I wish I would have found this article when it was written but it is still useful to read today! Thank you!

I wish there were more available on this topic. What I am finding now that my children are young adults, as the nonJewish mother of an increasingly Jewish family, is that while there are people who can explain things to me about Judaism, that is not the same thing as getting help locating myself in relation to Judaism. The latter I am finding a very challenging task. Judaism has ingroup/outgroup as such a central notion, with the importance it ascribes to peoplehood. To be a nonJewish member of a Jewish family is to be both in and out, neither in nor out. On good days I recognize this as a koan, and trust I’ll learn and grow from it. Not all days are good days.
