Latest Question & Answer

Question
Is there a specific mitzva of pursuing/working on Shalom Bayis (what is it/where do we find it) or is it rather that marriage is an ideal context to perform other mitzvos e.g. chesed, v'ohavta l'reiecha camocha, being an ohev/rodef shalom etc. which will lead to shalom bayis, but the concept of shalom bayis is not its own mitzva? Chag Sameach.

Answer
The mitzvah is Vahavta Lrayacha Kamocha...Rayacha refers PRIMARILY I believe to a spouse [ED. Note: As we prepare to launch our new site, BJL will be partnering with the Star-K on Ask the Rabbi and Kashrus Questions. Rabbi Ari Storch is no longer answering these. This question has been answered by a Star-K Rabbi]
