Posted on October 18, 2007 By Avraham Schwartzbaum Level: Beginner Tag: First Person. Excerpted from THE BAMBOO CRADLE, the journey of a Jewish father. Reprinted with permission of Feldheim Publishers. In Israel: POB 35002, Jersualem. One day each week he traveled to Taichung in central Taiwan. It was a long trip, made even longer by the fact that he had to travel first from the small fishing village of Tamsui to Taipei, and from there take a two-and-a-half-hour train ride to the university.
An American professor on a Fulbright Fellowship to Taiwan ﬁnds a newborn baby girl abandoned in a railroad station. In China, with overpopulation and where, traditionally, little value is placed on female oﬀspring, this almost commonplace occurrence could hardly be considered noteworthy. But for Allan Schwartzbaum, it was an event that would alter his life irrevocably.
The Schwartzbaums, married for nine years and unable to have children of their own, adopt the foundling and bring her back to America with them. Because they are Jewish, although not observant, they want to provide their new daughter with a basic Jewish education, but this turns out to be far from simple. In order to qualify for enrollment in the local Jewish Day School, the child has to ﬁrst be converted to Judaism. And in order to qualify for a legitimate conversion, she has to ﬁrst be guaranteed an Orthodox upbringing.
This heartwarming, true story, ﬁlled with humor and pathos, joy, frustration, and ultimately, fulﬁllment, describes the providential chain of events that lead the Schwartzbaums from the discovery of a Chinese infant to the discovery of their Jewish heritage. Along the way, they also discover that the burdens and obligations of authentic Judaism are outweighed by its myriad beneﬁts. This newly designed edition includes a new preface and over sixty color photographs, (many of which have never been published) that continue the story to our times. This classic bestseller is now updated for another generation to enjoy.
