Book Giveaway: Generation to Generation - Passing on a Legacy of Faith to Our Children #GenerationToGenerationSeptember 16, 2020
Born and raised a Catholic, once an adult, I wanted to learn about all other religions, to take in many beliefs. I ended up marrying another Catholic, we baptised our children Catholic, and have our own traditions that we love and celebrate! Yet, I believe in one God and I love sharing different religions and their traditions with my children, too! There is good in all religions and we encourage learning them all, to be open and inclusive and I really enjoyed learning about Judaism in Generation to Generation.
In her book, Generation to Generation, Fellowship President and CEO Yael Eckstein unlocks the keys to how the Jewish people have successfully passed on the legacy of faith through the family, and offers insights into how Christians can incorporate these principles within their own families to pass on a strong and living faith.
In Judaism, families plant the seeds of values including faith, wisdom, hope, courage, forgiveness, gratitude, generosity, and setting priorities. Values we must all seek to include in our daily lives.
I really enjoyed learning about the Sabbath/Shabbat, a day to enjoy and find clarity. Every Saturday, after working for six days, they prepare to take a break on the seventh day. To pause, reflect, refresh, and redirect. To regain perspective and focus on what is most important to them.
Generation to Generation is a great book to communicate faith and traditions we can all enjoy. Many are very similar to my upbringing. The idea is to continue to pass on the goodness of religion and beliefs to our children. I really enjoyed the read. Be inspired too and share this informative book.

About the Book:
In Judaism, faith is passed down from one generation to the next primarily through the holy observances, rituals, and traditions that happen within the life of the family. Through the weekly observance of the Sabbath, Jewish children learn the importance of setting priorities and putting God first. As the family gathers around the seder table for Passover, children learn the value of asking questions and seeking wisdom. Each holiday observed, and each tradition followed are opportunities to reinforce the fundamental values of faith.
Generation to Generation unlocks these holy observances and traditions and reveals the key values they reinforce. Each chapter also includes a special section containing insight on how the observance is mentioned in the Christian Bible along with questions and Bible stories to discuss with your family. Bible memory verses are offered to reinforce each key value.
These are the values and rituals that Yael Eckstein learned from her father, that she and her husband are now passing on to their four children, and that will allow you to pass on a strong and living faith to your children and grandchildren.
“The greatest legacy one can pass on to one's children and grandchildren is not money or other material things accumulated in one’s life, but rather a legacy of character and faith.” — Billy Graham
