April 18 @ 7:00 pm - 8:30 pm$12.00 - $18.00
In recent years family structures have taken on entirely new forms. How do we reinterpret the age-old commandment to Honor Thy Father and Mother in a time of blended families, same-sex parents, and new definitions? Author Marjorie Ingall and Tenement Museum Director Kevin Jennings consider what it means to honor Patriarchs and Matriarchs today. This program is part of a series exploring the Ten Commandments at Eldridge Street.
