The Marriage Covenant:A Guide to Jewish Marriage by Rabbi Elyashiv Knohl
First published in Hebrew in 2002, THE MARRIAGE COVENANT
(Ish Ve-Isha) has become a popular and respected guide for men and
women approaching marriage and for newlywed couples. This volume
discusses weddings, the marital relationship, sexuality, and childbirth
in clear and understandable language. It presents halakhic
guidelines and rulings in accordance with the standard, authoritative
sources, along with traditions, customs, and sound advice.
Addressing itself to couples living in contemporary society,
THE MARRIAGE COVENANT goes beyond theoretical halakha to
answer practical questions that arise in daily life. Unique for a work
of its kind, this book also addresses the emotional and psychological
challenges of marriage. It illustrates how two independent and mature
individuals can learn to live together and create a mutually respectful,
loving, and satisfying relationship that enriches their own lives and
the lives of those around them.
Includes a 56 page (soft cover) supplement: "A Guide to Marital Relations from a Torah Perspective".
