I can't claim to have read the whole book....

The point here is this. Like it or not Judaism is predicated on adherence to an exacting sets of non-negotiable rules and regulations which is the absolute bedrock of a religious tradition rooted in spirituality. Spirituality is reality. It's axiomatic. So here you have, at the very outset a situation in which one of the primary laws of Judaism are being transgressed i.e. intermarriage! And from this you expect to raise Jewish children? The very idea is so absurd it could only spring from those who knowledge of Judaism is lacking even the most basics tenets. One cannot even begin to scratch the surface of what being Jewish really means unless you are steeped in its authentic RELIGIOUS culture, rituals and traditions. Nothing in Judaism is superficial. Even the most apparently frivolous activities such as dressing up on Purim have a multi-layered spiritual context attached to them. I'm very aware of the harshness of this comment if only to make the point that Judaism is a very serious matter and many of the thoughts and ideas expressed in this book only trivialise and minimise the very potent message of G-d consciousness which is the unique expression of the Jewish faith.
