I would honestly have them practice both. Get exposure to both. I grew up with my Dad being Baha’i and my mother being a Christian. Had to memorize both prayers and scriptures but definitely gave me a different outlook to the world

If anything it’s teaching your Child that two people from different backgrounds can coexist and get exposure to people outside one specific group they see

Similar to AC1– expose to both. Difference is pick one religion because you can’t believe both things. We are a mixed family. Jews help Christians celebrate their holidays and vice versa. But we make clear to kids their identity and that because we love and respect each other, everyone helps celebrate a particular holiday. Good luck whatever you decide!

He’s not religious but doesn’t care to be religious either, Christian or Jewish. This kid was a bit of a surprise so we hadn’t really thought it out.

Well luckily for you, your child will be a Jew regardless of how you raise them since you are Jewish. I actually disagree with the other posters. I personally would recommend raising your child Jewish and perhaps celebrating Christmas and Easter in a more secular way, but not raising them Christian. It doesn’t seem like your husband is religious so I don’t see why you would need to take the extra effort to expose to both religions. The values and beliefs are very different in Christianity and Judaism too. Even if your husband isn’t religious and never steps inside of a synagogue there are so many ways that he can participate in making a Jewish home that just feels like family time whether its shabbat, hanging a mezuzah, holidays, or even just making a point of watching Jewish movies. Let your child be the guide too - maybe they will want to become a bar mitzvah.
