Drew Barrymore and her husband Will Kopelman have decided to raise their daughter, Olive, Jewish.
Drew describes her husband as "a nice Jewish man from a nice Jewish family" and even though she she hasn't converted herself yet she has fully embraced the religion. Her conversion began when she and Kopelman married in a traditional Jewish ceremony in June of 2012.
Drew feels like Judaism is "so family oriented...The stories are so beautiful and it's incredibly enlightening."
It's great that she feels that way because I imagine that in some mixed religion families especially Christian/Jewish families it's difficult to decide how children should be raised. I remember an episode of Pregnant in Heels where the husband was Jewish and the wife was Catholic and they fought about which way the child should be raised. The wife claimed that since she is the one giving birth that she should be able to raise the child Catholic, but the husband felt that since he is the bread winner/head of household the child should be Jewish.
Do you have a mixed religion household? How did you decide what religion to share with your children?
