Riassunto: The year 2006 brings new challenges to Judaism. The obvious external threat is due to new-born anti-Semitism in the world, and the threat of terrorism?and the threat of war. The internal threat to Judaism is the fact that our children are not educated well in religious schools.My book titled Coming of Age is about lack of faith for Jewish children schooled in after-secular school Hebrew programs. Often-times these Hebrew Schools are nothing but Bar-Mitzvah ?Mills? who turn children away from the faith, rather than toward it. It has many lessons for Jewish families of today. The main lesson is that Judaic education must be changed to better motivate Jewish children. THIS IS NOT NECESSARILY ONLY FOR JEWISH PARENTS?CHILDREN TODAY ARE NOT LEARNING RELIGION FOR MOST RELIGIONS! FOR COMING OF AGE: THERE IS NO OTHER SUCH BOOK ON THE MARKET! A ?How-to? book on the religious ceremony of ?Bar-and-Bat-Mitzvah? that can be planned at home (it is, after all, a tradition) that is used to motivate children; give them Jewish identity and allows parents the ability to join with their child in formulating this special service.
L'autore: Gary Chattman has had many varied and celebratory careers dating back to when, as an eleven-year-old, when he was a piano teacher, visiting his pupils? homes by riding there on his bicycle. He was a highly successful teacher/administrator with the New York City Department of Education for over 30 years. Now retired, he also has been a camp director of various camps; a professor of English/drama/music at Pace University, Westchester; The College of New Rochelle; Lehman College of the Bronx. Throughout his career, he has also served as principal for various Hebrew schools, as well as secular schools. His concept of personal Judaic education has led to his formulating (with his students and their families) 200 Bar/Bat Mitzvah services in the New York City Metropolitan area. This utilizes the concept of the child celebrated as the ?rabbi? of the day. Chattman has formulated many curricula about Jewish education, such as ?Jewish Bingo?; ?Who Wants to Be a Jewish Millionaire?; ?Jewish Monopoly?; board and card games for Judaic educational needs. Next to his personal Torah in his car trunk is his Casio keyboard, which he uses to teach Jewish music and to write Jewish songs with his students. Each week he dramatizes Jewish ideas, holidays, history, culture, religion, in short plays featuring Yuki, the Japanese Jewish dog who speaks English and Hebrew. His students, in this active Jewish learning, read these with him. His unique brand of ?Have Torah?Will Travel? has earned him laudatory articles in both the Jewish Week Newspaper and Westchester Gannett?s The Journal News. Chattman has written many stories, songs, plays and novels, as well as the non-fiction parental guide to Bar-and-Bat-Mitzvah titled Coming of Age. He has formed SUPERTUTORS for the express purpose of bringing religious (and secular) education and identity to children of enlightened families who are eager to give their children a Jewish education that will ?stick.?
