i LOVED IT IF ALL JEWISH CHILDREN WOULD THINK THIS WAY WHAT A LIFE WE WOULD HAVE
August 25, 2011 7:24 PM
They touched my heart and gave me pause. They expressed all of my wishes, but I need to find the hope the children feel.

We need to feel the children's hope.
I think that is your answer.
You will achieve it through sincere prayer.
Shana Tova and may all of your prayers be answered favourably. Regards, Richard, London, UK

The Jewish future
Oh, from the mouths of babes!
August 25, 2011 2:43 PM
I never knew how popular the Jewish community is in LA. This is indeed a sign of hope for Jewish continuity so as long as these Jewish children stick to their Jewish values and not be swayed by missionaries or intermarriage. I feel that Jews intermarrying essentially eliminates the purpose in being Jewish, esp. with Jewish continuity. Also, I hear conflicting info out there on the implications of Jewish marriage where one source will argue that the children of such a Jewish intermarriage will practice Judaism, while other sources argue that it is highly unlikely the children of intermarried parents would really be that interested in Judaism, esp. since intermarriage does cut off a part of the Jewish family lineage. But, is what determines who is a Jew based on biology or education?

How Beautiful These Children Are

They are just little kids! Wait untill they get to their late teens, then ask them the same questions. Will they marry someone jewish? i dont think we have a promising future for religeous jews.

What a wonderful video
Remember how few people were in the ark? If we've got wonderful children like this, Judaism will survive just fine! Yesterday, while shopping for shoes, I overheard a young girl ask her whispering Mom, "What is 'frum'?" The mom looked around and said nothing. I said softly to the girl, "It's a very good word, dear." They made my day, just as these dear children have in this video. Boruch HaShem!
