A Torah Perspective on Contemporary Lifestyles By Leo Levi (244 Pages)Publisher: Hemed, 1998
The traditional Jewish family has long been distinguished by its stability. In addition to nurturing altruism, these families assign a well-defined role to sex, encouraging it in one way and restricting it in another, molding it into the strong bond it is there. They also divide the family tasks judiciously between husband and wife, carefully safeguarding the rights of each, while dividing the responsibilities more or less equitably. Here the reader is invited to explore these principles as truly liberating the individual and as possible factors underlying the success of the traditional Jewish family.
