comment Proper age to take a child to Shul
(Note: My girls do not go to shul. My Rebbi's wife said that "in Europe", the girls only went to shul for Shabbas Kallah. In addition, this promotes the problem of kids being around the shul as the wife feels she has to go to shul.) I completely disagree, why should the woman feel she has to go to shul, shouldn't she be going? I take offense to this.

On the same lines, is it okay to slightly change the name in order to name after someone from the opposite gender of the baby?
