Religion and Culture #31Days

Monday, October 7, 2013

We have been writing about our family background, including our roots and where we came from. Today’s question is about religion and culture. Did you grow up with religion in your home? Do you still practice that religion? Do you know whether your parents or grandparents were raised with a certain religion?

Dave and I were both raised Jewish. My paternal grandmother grew up living with her grandfather and he was quite religious, at least according to my grandmother. However, my grandparents did not raise their children religious. My parents were raised with connections to Judaism though, and while they may not have observed all the laws, Judaism was important to them. Hence, they in turn raised my brother and I with Jewish tradition and culture in our home.

Feel free to tell me about your family’s religious or cultural background in the comments or by leaving a link to your post!
