Coming of Age by Gary D. Chattman
Sorry, this product is not currently available to order


The year 2006 brings new challenges to Judaism. The obvious external threat is due to new-born anti-Semitism in the world, and the threat of terrorism-and the threat of war. The internal threat to Judaism is the fact that our children are not educated well in religious schools. My book titled Coming of Age is about lack of faith for Jewish children schooled in after-secular school Hebrew programs. Often-times these Hebrew Schools are nothing but Bar-Mitzvah "Mills" who turn children away from the faith, rather than toward it. It has many lessons for Jewish families of today. The main lesson is that Judaic education must be changed to better motivate Jewish children. THIS IS NOT NECESSARILY ONLY FOR JEWISH PARENTS-CHILDREN TODAY ARE NOT LEARNING RELIGION FOR MOST RELIGIONS! FOR COMING OF AGE: THERE IS NO OTHER SUCH BOOK ON THE MARKET! A "How-to" book on the religious ceremony of "Bar-and-Bat-Mitzvah" that can be planned at home (it is, after all, a tradition) that is used to motivate children; give them Jewish identity and allows parents the ability to join with their child in formulating this special service.
