The Cosmic Root of Love Is love as simple as mutual chemistry, or is there something more than the force of attraction that connects two people? Is marriage really necessary, if we can reap its benefits without entering into a life-long commitment? What is the true definition of a “soulmate,” and how does this impact our relationship? This fascinating lesson uncovers the mystical root of love and marriage according to Jewish thought.
Judaism’s View of Intimacy Is G-d comfortable in the bedroom? Is sexual intimacy holy? Profane? Mundane? Holy, but only as a means to procreation? What does Judaism have to say about sexuality and how to enhance the intimacy between husband and wife? This lesson taps into Judaism’s vast reservoir of wisdom, both practical and kabbalistic, on a topic your Hebrew school teacher likely never broached.
Synergizing and Sanctifying Love and Desire We all start out starry-eyed, but is “passionate marriage” realistic in the long-term? How can one relationship give us the comforting security we crave from commitment as well as the spark of novelty and mystique that fuels desire? The mitzvah of taharat hamishpachah, or “family purity,” has long been shrouded in mystery and misconception. Yet these laws may just hold the secret to synchronizing--and sanctifying--these paradoxical aspects of marriage, while also revealing an unparalleled connection between us and G-d.
