The four week course, facilitated by Rabbi David Lister, will be held at Edgware United Synagogue and focuses on the relevant Jewish topics and issues that arise in the home throughout married life.
Each week there will be a talk followed by a Question and Answer session to strengthen and reinforce the participant’s knowledge of keeping a kosher home, putting up mezuzot, the role of Shabbat and Yom Tov and the importance of morals and ethics between married couples.
The idea for the post marriage series arose after its facilitator, Rabbi David Lister, found himself responding to questions by young couples in their pre-marriage classes about potential issues that may prevail in the home. He said;
“This new initiative answers a long standing need expressed by people about to set up their new home. We hope it will help them to bring the beauty of Judaism to their homes on a day to day basis.”
Stephen Jacobson, Chairman of Edgware United Synagogue was thrilled with the new initiative;
“We are delighted that this new series of talks supported by the US Living and Learning department for newly married couples is to be given by Rabbi David Lister and are pleased that they are being held at our synagogue. The series of four talks are open to newly married couples from all over London and cover halachot to do with the home and relationships. I am sure the talks will be a great success and of benefit to the young couples on their journey through married life.”
