Read full description of the books How to Be a Jewish Parent: A Practical Handbook for Family Life:This is mostly regurgitated from Living a Jewish Life: Jewish Traditions, Customs and Values for Today's Families and, thus, is pretty dull if you've recently read that book. Most of the parenting advice is very standard: teenagers want to rebel - who knew?
The part about circumcision riled me up. Throughout the whole book there is a lot of "Oh, you should do whatever works for your family" stuff, yet when it comes to circumcision, the quote about "If we stop circumcising, we stop being Jews" is thrown out. It's the only thing presented as un-optional, do-this-or-you-are-not-Jewish and, frankly, I expected more of Anita Diamant, who is so much a liberal Jew she doesn't even mention Orthodoxy in her books.
Anita Diamant, I am disappoint.

Addie Baum is THE BOSTON GIRL, born in 1900 to immigrant parents who were unprepared for America and its effect on their three daughters. Growing up in the North End, then a teeming multicultural neighborhood, Addie’s intelligence and curiosity take her to the wider world of the 1910s and ‘20s: short skirts, celebrity culture, and new opportunities for women.

Three other novels followed: GOOD HARBOR, THE LAST DAYS OF DOGTOWN and, DAY AFTER NIGHT.

An award-winning journalist, Diamant's articles have appeared in the Boston Globe Magazine, Real Simple, Parenting Magazine, Hadassah, Reform Judaism, Boston Magazine and Yankee Magazine.PITCHING MY TENT, a collection personal essays, is drawn from twenty years worth of newspaper and magazine columns.
