The Sabbath: An explanation of the Jewish concept of the Sabbath and a look at how Shabbat is actually an incredible gift, especially in our modern era of constant technology.
Jewish Observance: An exploration of how the rituals of Jewish life build a moral framework to make one’s own life and society better.
Sexuality: A discussion of how the physical unity between a man and a woman is elevated by the inclusion of a mature and committed understanding of our relationships with one another and with an awareness of every couple’s ability to build and perfect the world.
