Torah parenthood is not ‘politically correct’

For politically correct liberal millenials parenthood has become a ‘possible option’ – and not a moral obligation – on the way to singular, subjective self-fulfillment.

For the Torah Jew parenthood – creating a family living a life of Torah and thus enriching and building the Jewish people – is the most powerful act of social justice and tikun olam that they can do.

The most convincing statistic that dramatically portrays the difference between politically correct and Torah parenthood is this: throughout the entire modern world, higher education and gender equality in employment strongly correlate with lower fertility, bringing fewer children into the world.

The only exception to this correlation is the Israeli national religious community. National religious mothers are the only sub-population in the world where higher education and employment still correlate with large families. Such is the way of the Torah.
