Led by Rabbi Yossi Liebowitz

This six-session study of marriage will explore the biblical, social, legal, and historical foundations of the institution of marriage and the landscape of marriage today. Come explore this important topic in our church and world as expert teachers from our church and community lead us into deeper understanding of the topic and the variety of views that surround it. Since each session reveals an important piece of this puzzle, pre-registration and attendance of all sessions is encouraged. The formal presentations from each session will be broadcast and recorded as well.
