Being Both: Embracing Two Religions in One Interfaith Family

Being Both: Embracing Two Religions in One Interfaith Family - Susan Katz Miller This was a very fascinating to read and so glad I got it from a Goodreads giveaway. I always found the Christian/Jewish interfaith marriages, then family, very interesting as my introduction to it was through a cartoon. From then on I always found it interesting and wondered how difficult it was for a child as well as the parents involved.

Susan provided a great insight into this dynamic. Not only does it describe how the children are feeling, but what the benefits are for them to having both. It also explains and helps one understand the concerns of families who will have an interfaith couple/family in their midst. It also seemed to me, that it could help those who would be entering this new frontier. This would help those answer questions, ideas of how to handle it, and help children understand what they are feeling and experiencing.

This opened my eyes to a whole new world and the struggles that one will encounter, but ultimately the benefits of having both in the same household. I'm glad I read this as I found this a new learning lesson that everyone can learn.
