Dear Anonymous from San Diego,

Do not give up, keep praying for them, maybe one day they do teshuva.
I did not know I was even Jewish until last summer. Things usually go down the slope this way, and once we realize, we must start crawling back up and it is quite an effort, but not impossible. One day your children, or grandchildren, or great grandchildren can realize there is a better way to be. Hitbodedut and trying to settle things with Hashem might help. Never give up. Shalom. Reply

Thank you for a lovely and engaging lecture - so light and full of so much conventional learning Reply

I failed My children were so against their father's ways that my son has no religion since after his Bar Mitzvah and daughter refused to even date a Jewish guy.

She converted to Catholicism and proceeded to marry 3 non-Jewish men ... all very similar to her father!

I do not know how or what my mom z"l did to make both my brother and me to like and be proud to be a Jew - because she couldn't afford to keep us in Hebrew school while all of our cousins were studying through high school.

Of all the cousins, only my beloved brother z"l and I remained Jews. His 3 sons are not any religion.

I don't know the answer -- but I am most grateful to my mother for doing something right for us. Reply
