I’ve been divorced for most of my children’s childhood, and they are teens now. I was modern orthodox until the divorce. Now, labels don’t really work for how I practice Judaism. I only see my kids every other weekend, and we observe Friday night with many songs and blessings. They attend public school, and never go to shul. They don’t observe any of the holidays or go to hebrew school. Will they have any kind of Jewish connection? I’m so sad none of my kids had a bar mitzvah.
Mad at ex for this.
