The Torah of Love

By Vanessa L. Ochs

Jewish Family & Life (JFL Media), June 2003

Members of the very observant Jewish world can have trouble finding arranged marriages if a family member has any number of illnesses or disabilities. While this concept seems very harsh, it does exhibit a lesson that more liberal branches of Judaism could learn from: seeing supporting marriages as a communal, rather than an individual, project.
