It¹s a time of joy and a time of doubt - finding a match and building a Jewish home: finding the basherte, shaping a marriage, perpetuating harmony, handling problems. We are inundated with articles, books, shows, and theories on how to make matches and build Jewish homes. So thoroughly surrounded are we by the host culture and its mores, that we can easily forget to ask basic questions: What does the Torah say? What do its spokesmen teach us? What does our mesorah, our tradition teach us. That¹s why this book is so important.
In this Judaiscope® book, a broad array of gedolim and professionals meet these challenges head on, offering Torah perspectives, sound advice, and practical guidance - Rabbi Avrohom Pam zt"l, Rabbi Yaakov Perlow, Rabbi Chaim Pinchas Scheinberg, Rabbi Matisyahu Salomon, Rabbi Ephraim Wachsman, and Rabbi Yisroel Reisman among others, as well as such thinkers and counselors as Professor Aaron Twerski and Dr. Meir Wikler, to name just a few!
More than 40 articles culled from The Jewish Observer archives enlighten us on such categories as: Shidduchim; the Road to the Chupah: Navigating the Potholes; Preparing for Marriage; The Wedding Celebration; Maintaining Shalom Bayis; and Dealing with Extraordinary Circumstances.
"If one becomes sidetracked from what his focus should be, and concentrates on extraneous matters – such as beauty, wealth or honor – he is in effect losing sight of the purpose for which marriage was created."
Rabbi Matisyahu Salomon
Mashgiach, Bais Medrash Govoha
– excerpted from the book’s introductory article
"In this important volume on shidduchim and family life, the voices of our Gedolim and dedicated professionals ring a clear and comforting tone. Regardless of where you stand in the life cycle of dating, marriage and family life, this collection of classic articles provides true Torah wisdom and guidance, along with a keen focus on the issues and challenges we all face, in these crucial areas of our lives."
Shaya Ostrov, L.C.S.W. Marital Therapist, Relationship Mentor
Author, The Inner Circle: Seven Gates to Marriage.
"More than ever, people are recognizing the need for formal Shalom Bayis classes. This book can serve as vital source material for such hadracha (guidance) sessions."
Rabbi Dr. Aaron D. Twerski
Dean, Hofstra University Law School
