MARRIAGE AND THE JEWISH TRADITION

An anthology which examines the firm foundations, historical, philosophical, spiritual and practical, of Jewish family life and demonstrates the sources of solidarity through the years. This is not a practical manual of marriage- as was The Catholic Book of Marriage (Farrar, Straus) but an exposition of traditions and values in their derivation from the Old Treatment, their modification through the ages, their maintenance today. Here is not only the spiritual significance (""A consecration, a sanctification of life"") of marriage, but all the attitudes within this faith towards children, love, monogamy, divorce, home and religious education. A book to be called to the attention of local Rabbis, teachers, and Jewish leaders.
