The Good Jewish Home offers thoughts, ideas, and guidance on how to celebrate your Jewish heritage in a modern family setting.

The Good Jewish Home includes a brief history of Jewish thought, passages and ideas from biblical text and how they can guide modern daily life, inspiration from great Jewish thinkers and leaders, a discussion of Jewish family roles as they appear in the Torah, and Shabbat�s importance as a weekly ritual to reinforce Jewish tradition.
