Library Journal Review

Bell has selected over 50 articles on topics common and uncommon, social and spiritual from the popular ``Parenting'' column she edits for Hadassah magazine. Ranging widely, she discusses such diverse issues as deciding on having a bris for your newborn son, celebrating the birth of a daughter, celebrating bar and bat mitzvas, choosing a college, grandparenting, caring for aging parents, dealing with a parent's death, teaching Judaism in the home, creating an appropriate Sabbath environment, facing the ``December dilemma,'' and teaching children Jewish civil responsibility. While all the articles are sound, thought-provoking, and ultimately practical, some are especially memorable: Blue Greenberg's ``The Joys of a Large Family,'' Jack Reimer's ``Ethical Wills,'' and Daniel Symes's ``Preventing Teenage Suicide.'' What a strong and joyous celebration of the Jewish family--Orthodox, Reform, or Conservative--in America today! Highly recommended.-- Marcia G. Fuchs, Guilford Free Lib., Ct. (c) Copyright 2010.
