niddah What happens if a couple, Jewish but not observant, has a child born outside the parameters of the lasws of taaras mishpacha. The couple then becomes observant as does the male child. Is that child viewed with any negative eye? Reply

The child is most probably, technically a "ben nidda," a spiritual state. I have heard of some people preferring to marry Jews who are not bnei nidda, but I think this is certainly not the majority view. On the contrary, the family should be viewed in a positive eye for returning to the ways of the Torah! Reply

Practical Parshah As always an erudite instruction. I look forward to your sermon each week. Reply

Each week, Rabbi Mendel Kaplan will delve into that week's Torah reading to bring out a practical lesson for life and explain the Biblical sources for the customs, laws, practices and ethics of our people.
