Jewish Family Values Today

By William Berkson

Jewish Communal Service Association of North America (JCSA), March 1996

The rejection of patriarchy and the conflict between traditional Jewish values and humanist psychology require a creative reconstruction of Jewish values so they can serve as a clearer guide for family relationships. This article creatively applies Jewish values to the issue of child discipline, about which there is pervasive confusion over what parental authority is legitimate and how to exercise it. In Journal of Jewish Communal Service, v.72 no.3, Spring 1996.
