40 Things You Can Do to Save the Jewish People: Parenting Tips for Raising "Good Enough" Jewish Kids Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Because thirteen-year-old Gabe is mentally disabled and has special needs, his rabbi and family create an unconventional bar mitzvah for him, one centered around the story of Noah's ark.

Synopsis:

An insightful book on Jewish parenting by a middle-aged divorced man without children, 40 Things is based on the many failures and few successes of the author's friends' attempts to be perfect Jewish parents. A practical book about improving the odds, the book poses the question, "How much can we get away with and still raise fully Jewish children who will in turn raise other Jewish children?"

In a brand new epilogue titled "Postcards From the Yukon of Jewish Life: An Ode to Devin, " Grishaver shares insights he has learned through four years of performing, preaching and facilitating the 40 Things parenting workshop in places such as Alaska, Alabama and Texas. These experiences have provided Grishaver with rich fodder for illustrating that "the truth about Jewish life is never in the numbers. It is in the stories we tell."
