Family Redeemed

Essays on Family Relationships

By Joseph B. Soloveitchik

Be the first to review this product

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 lonely person yearns on the one hand to join another real person, to fill his life with the essence of another real life which has been summoned by God into his service, and, on the other hand, to create a new life to whose growth and development the lonely individual commits himself a priori fully and unreservedly.
"Two lonely individuals with their urge to love commit themselves to creativity in order to love someone who will emerge in the course of time as a new member of the small community they founded together. This someone, as yet hidden in the recesses of the anonymity of non-being, gives purpose and meaning to the community and helps father and mother to find themselves and their exact position in the creation." ~ excerpted from Family Redeemed
