Watch: What is Wrong with Intermarriage?
Why is intermarriage such a serious problem? Rabbi Menachem Levine discusses the causes and effects of intermarriage in a panel debating the future of the Jewish Family. Must see
I have several questions: I’m 21 and am engaged to be married (we didn’t set a date yet). My problem starts with the fact that I have trouble understanding why people have to get married and what’s the point in bringing children into the world – our world is full of crises and bringing children into the world is only a selfish gain – so that we have a feeling of satisfaction and continuity. However, we don’t know what will happen in our lives in the future, what will be the fate of our children, and we certainly won’t be able to stay to help them their whole lives. I know that this thinking is twisted and incorrect, and that’s why I’m turning to you, so that you can change my thinking, because I have a lot of reservations about all of this. Despite my way of thinking, there’s no doubt that I’ll do this anyway because of the command of the Creator, and there’s no command of His that’s not good. In addition, I’m constantly hearing from those around me and from people close to me: not to get married young, to go on trips; marriage just makes a person start to have to deal with payments and a mortgage; it affects work, it doesn’t let you enjoy life because there will be a lot of crises; the best time to get married is when you’re 25, etc… We’re getting married, iy”H in another year, but people keep making me be not motivated. I’d appreciate getting guidance because I know that this isn’t the proper way of thinking.

Last will and Testament of Oldest Man in Jerusalem
Chacham Zacharia Brashi the rabbi of the Kurdish Jewish Community who died at 116 leaves a last will and testament for his family. It really is for all of us to learn.
I'm 21 years old, and baruch Hashem (thank G-d) I also accepted a marriage proposal and I'm getting married (there is no date yet). My issue starts with the fact that I have a little problem in understanding why we should get married and have children, since our world is full of crises and bringing children to the world is a matter of a personal interest only, so that we can feel satisfaction and a sense of continuation. But we don't know what our life will be like in future, what our children's fate will be, and certainly we can't be with them all their lives to help them. I know that this is warped and incorrect thinking, and that's why I'm turning to you, so that you can change my thinking, because I have great doubts about this matter. In spite of my thinking, I have no doubt that I will fulfill it, since this is the Creator's commandment, and there is no commandment that is not good. Also, I keep hearing from people that are close to me that I shouldn't get married young, I should go on trips… Just to start involvement with payments, mortgage, it affects work, it means not enjoying life, and since there will be many crises, the best age to get married is 25, etc. G-d willing, the wedding will be in a year's time. Every time they knock down my motivation. I will appreciate getting advice, because I know this thinking is not good and not right.

Laws governing a Jewish father’s relationship with his non-Jewish daughter
Rabbi, thank G-d I became religious over a year ago and I belong to the national-religious community. I try to keep more commandments and laws from day to day and in the meantime, everything is going great and I feel closer to G-d more than ever. Unfortunately, in my secular past, I lived with a non-Jewish woman who was a rather religious Christian for several years and we had a daughter. Following a dispute, we parted, the girl stayed with her and I gradually became more interested in Judaism until I became religious. I found a Jewish woman and I married her, and G-d willing we will soon have children and establish a Jewish family. But because I am the father of a girl who is now 14 years old, I meet her often even though I know that according to Jewish law, she is not my daughter because she is not Jewish, and therefore I unfortunately have not yet fulfilled the commandment of procreation. I wanted to ask you, rabbi, my questions about the child: 1. When I meet with my daughter, she instinctively wants to give me a kiss and a hug, and I also hug and kiss her back. But recently a number of people remarked to me that this might be a problem and I may not be allowed to touch her because she is not Jewish. Is this the case? Do I have to restrain from touching her or am I allowed to hug and kiss her because I know in my soul that she is still my daughter? It will be very hard for me to refuse to embrace my daughter because I still feel that she is part of me and she really loves me and I love her very much and I do not think I can hold back from touching her. 2. My daughter sometimes brings me cookies that she bakes at home and I'm sure that the oven in their house is non-kosher even if the ingredients of cookies are kosher. There is also a problem of food cooked without Jewish supervision. I often avoid eating the cookies that she offers me, claiming I am not hungry, but sometimes she insists and begs me to taste them (she probably does not have the slightest idea of the laws of kashrut) and I find it hard to keep refusing her and unwillingly eat the cookies. In your opinion, what can I do? I am very afraid that she will be hurt if I tell her that I can not eat her cookies. 3. When we meet, my daughter is very interested about everything that occurred in my life in the past year since I started to become religious, and is quite astonished to see her father looking different with a beard, wearing a kippa, blessing over food, etc., And because she is not used to it, she often is worried that I may leave her and cut off contact with her, G-d forbid. What do you think is the best way to explain the spiritual process I have been going through? 4. All this makes me wonder what should be our general attitude towards the nations of the world? We know that man is beloved because he was created in G-d’s image and we have to respect every human being no matter who he is, but to what degree are we allowed to form friendships with non-Jews? 5. I'll take advantage of the fact that I am writing these other questions and ask you a question on a slightly different matter: My wife wears a head-covering since we got married, but now she says it's not comfortable for her and she wants to go with a wig. Could I hear what you think about wearing a wig and if it is forbidden, why is that? Thank you and have a good week.
