Family Redeemed: Essays on Family Relationships

Front Cover
KTAV Publishing House, Inc., 2000 - Religion - 207 pages
The essays in this volume focus on family relationships--between husbands and wives, parents and children. The analyses are rooted in a theory of personality which emerges from the Rav's brilliant interpretations of biblical, talmudic, midrashic, kabbalistic and halakhic texts, as well as from his command of Western philosophy and literature. The essays develop a Jewish theory of marriage and sexuality, parenthood, and the duty to honor and revere one's parents. Throughout, the Rav displays connections in Judaism between attitudes to God and attitudes to family.
