In this episode, we discuss the general life strengths, marital strengths, and parenting strengths of Jewish families belonging to various branches of Judaism. The fabric of ritual and tradition is interwoven in marriage and family life for the observant Jewish families who shared their experiences with us. These rituals, traditions, and observances seem to foster a sense of duty and unity among families in the Jewish community.
This podcast features conversations about faith and family life between the Co-directors of the American Families of Faith project (http://AmericanFamiliesofFaith.byu.edu) Dr. David Dollahite and Dr. Loren Marks.
