We have always been a Jewish family. We celebrate all the Jewish holidays, had our kids bar mitzvahed, sent them on Birthright trips, and occasionally attended shul.
My son is marrying a woman from Singapore and we adore her. They are having a secular wedding — which we have accepted — but I did ask my son if he would break a glass at the end of his ceremony. He has refused. We are all going to Singapore to participate in her family traditions, but he has said he doesn’t want us to throw him a wedding or reception here. I am heartbroken that he will not honor this one request to honor his roots as a person who was raised in a Jewish home. Am I being ridiculous?
