Birth of a child Jewish family and its attitude toward offspring
Book part (Published version)
MetadataShow full item record
The ideas about family, the most solid social foundation in the life of man, are as old as the Jewish nation itself. They survived unchanged throughout history, from the First Book of Moses (Genesis) until today. For centuries, the Jewish family preserved the integrity, spirit and tradition of the Jewish people, wherever in the world they lived. It provided a shield against assimilation, stronger and more important than the one offered by the synagogue. The first notions about the world, as well as the models of behaviour and the system of values, are formed within the family. It has therefore been the major focus of reflections and debates found in the numerous religious books of the Jewish people.
