Non Jewish Nannies
« on: November 27, 2022, 08:32:34 PM »
Saw an article on YWN written by R' Yair Hoffman https://www.theyeshivaworld.com/news/headlines-breaking-stories/2142173/adrianna-the-non-jewish-nanny-and-halacha.html.
I know some people with non jewish nannies, it is curious to know the halachic problems that may come up with having a non jewish nanny. I doubt you can find too many jewish woman that are full time nannies. what are your thoughts?

You’re asking in general or judging by our local one? :P

You're asking in general? Because the subject of the article is not relevant to the vast majority of people who have a non Jewish nanny.

In my humble opinion, non-Jewish nannies are much more effective then missionaries.
While a missionary would come straight out pushing ideas that are anti Jewish, which may lead to pushback from the child, a non-Jewish nanny will slowly destroy the child with ideas and Hashkofos that are anti-Torah. And Walla! 5 years later the child will think and talk like a non-Jew!
