My Son is Doing the Opposite

I have prayed since my boys were babies that they’d grow up to marry Jewish and find their destined brides at the right time. My son is dating a non-Jewish woman. I’m going to Israel in a few weeks. What additional prayers or commandments can I do to have my son move toward having a...

Our Son-in-Law

Dear Rabbi and Susan, Our son-in-law has disrespected my husband and me on two separate occasions when visiting him and my daughter. We live far away, and so we see them in intense bouts. He has a lot of baggage from his childhood (he never spoke to his father until he was on his deathbed)...
