In this seminar “The Mitzvah Of Procreation” in our series Love and Marriage Jewish Style, Rabbi Norbert Weinberg will help us explore the fundamental reasons for the commandment of procreation and whether the imperative is directed at a man, a woman or both. We will study the Halachic ramifications of this issue as well as the time when life begins according to Jewish theology. We will learn whether birth control is permitted under Jewish law and if so, under what conditions. Finally, we will examine how many ceremonies actually take place under the chuppa (marriage canopy) and the possible problems and consequences of a man and woman living together.
$20/person/seminar or $75 for the 4-part series. Scholarships available upon request
