Romance & Commitment

This month, we are exploring relationships. We’ll be speaking with people with experience all along the spectrum of relationships, from singlehood, to marriage, to problematic and unsafe relationships. We’ll be thinking about the many vulnerabilities of life in relationship, through conversations with our host, David Bashevkin, Esther Williams and Dr. Shoshannah Frydman from the Shalom Task Force, Zahava Moskowitz, and Channah Cohen.

Central questions: 

  • Choice and Commitment: How can we foster committed relationships in an era of radical choice?  

  • Cultures of Dating: How can one navigate the expectations, obligations, and sensitivities, of the different worlds of Jewish dating?

  • Ways of Seeing: How does one decide what to look for in love, and know what not to look for?
