#Unorthodox: A Hasidic Mom Who Loves Her Kids Unconditionally After They Took Different Paths

Her children took different paths, and she loves them all unconditionally! Again and again in the media and at Makom, we hear of the parents who disown their kids for leaving Judaism or even choosing a different Jewish path. We never hear from the parents who do whatever they can to show their kids they love them and support them no matter what. It’s time we broaden the narrative. Here is our live conversation about Hasidic parents who embody the unconditional love we frequently speak about around here.

    I am full of admiration for both of you, Allison and Faiga Leah.

    Allison, thank you for the important work you are doing.

    Faiga Leah: I am deeply impressed by your wisdom and your very clear sight on the essentials about human relations, which also happen to be, (in my view), essentials in Yiddishkeit. you are a true Chassid worthy of that name, because you have internalised the interior aspects of avodat hashem, and you do not focus and externalities. Seldom have I heard someone express the essentials as clearly as you do, seldom have I heard anyone expose the inner logic as stringently as you do.

    You demonstrate how important it is to come away from social pressure and externalities, to focus on truth and reality as it is, and to deal with it to the best of your abilities.

    Thank you both so much for this video.
    Thank you both for being who you are, for being as you are.

    Is there a translation of this talk in Hebrew? I’d love my husband to see this.

        Is there any way I can get in contact with faigy Leah or any websites or organizations that help children off the derech and their families?

    This video needs captions so deaf Jews like myself can also benefit!
