Summary: "The United States is in the midst of a whirlwind of change regarding marriage law and culture, and such changes affect every religion. This edited collection explores Jewish marriage from both a historical and a contemporary perspective, focusing on the religious construct of marriage and the social impact of family in the Jewish community. It's intended to help explain the present and the immediate future in light of exceedingly ancient Jewish perspectives on family and marriage." "Containing previously unpublished essays, Marriage, Sex, and Family in Judaism provides a road map for the Jewish tradition, both in relationship to the historical Jewish models of marriage as well as in relationship to changes in American society."--Jacket.
