My mom always said we were Jewish. And then my son began digging around in our ancestry and discovered otherwise.
The good news: my husband agreed to raise our family Jewish. The bad news: to him this means that I do all the work and he doesn’t protest.
My Catholic in-laws are really pushing their religion on my half-Jewish children. Now they want to take the whole family to see the Pope. Seesaw, is it wrong to tell them enough is enough?
My friend wants to teach his Buddhist meditation group about teshuvah. But I don’t think the tradition of repentance should be taken out of the Jewish context. Who’s right, Seesaw?
I’ve long dreamt of becoming a rabbi and I feel the time is right to give it a shot. My problem? My husband isn’t Jewish. Seesaw, why should that stop me?
My daughter just got engaged and her husband-to-be wants their future children raised Catholic like him. Seesaw, is there anything I can do to get them to reconsider this decision?

My son is marrying a woman from Singapore and he refuses to incorporate any Jewish traditions in the wedding — even breaking the glass. Seesaw, am I being ridiculous to care?
