    I admire Israeli's desire to adopt these children. Please! Stop and think! If non-Jews adopted Jewish children and converted them to Christian faiths, there would be a huge uproar about antisemitism. Adoptive parents should make sure they do their best to raise the children in whatever faith they held before adoption, or it will become just another one of those issues for hatemongers. I'm nonjewish, with 3 (now adult) Israeli 'godchildren'(the parents' kind identification of both difference and inclusion)...when one wanted to live with me, I reminded them that living with a nonJew meant they would have to go to both regular school and Hebrew school, since I couldn't teach them their faith/heritage. In fact, the purpose of godparents is having someone you trust to raise a child the way the original parents would...should adoptive parents do any less?
