You may have heard about the Hasidic newspaper which edited the photo of the security team in the Situation Room. One of my mom’s friends even asked her about it, and she in turn asked me. I didn’t feel like I gave a very good response. It was a little bit knee-jerk, a little bit apologetic. Not exactly my finest moment.
My friend Ruchi responded in a different, much more eloquent and thoughtful way. Here is her blog post discussing this event.
Boys will be boys? Girls want to be princesses? Mara over at Kosher on a Budget asks if our kids’ toys affect their attitudes toward gender roles.
Do you know what your kids are playing with at their friends’ houses? Finally, Joan over at NJ.com raises a question I wouldn’t have thought to ask, but that is an important one.
Have a great Shabbos!
