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 Rabbi Danny Nevins consider what it means to honor Patriarchs and Matriarchs today. This program is part of a series exploring the Ten Commandments at Eldridge Street. Presented in partnership with Limmud NY.
Marjorie Ingall is a columnist for Tablet Magazine and the author of Mamaleh Knows Best: What Jewish Mothers Do to Raise Successful, Creative, Empathetic, Independent Children.

She’s also a ghostwriter (shh).
