How financially secure does a young couple need to be before marriage? Should a parent be pro-active in finding dates for a child? What if a relationship doesn’t progress after 6 months? (Should we push?) Are there any red flags to warn our children about? “I want to meet my son’s girlfriend; when is appropriate?
These questions and many more will be addressed on Sunday, May 19, at 9:30 a.m., at a fascinating community Symposium and Benefit Breakfast for YUConnects at Congregation Beth Sholom of Lawrence. “When Children Date: The Complex Role of Parents” highlights contemporary scenarios affecting family relationships. Panelists include Rabbi Aryeh Lebowitz, Rebbetzin Elisheva Kaminetsky, and Mrs. Mindy Eisenman.
A breakfast buffet will be served and there will be an opportunity for parents to informally meet some top matchmakers and to network afterwards. Attendees can learn about a brand new YUConnects initiative benefiting the greater Long Island area. A promotional code for a one-month trial will be available. While this is not a singles event, funds raised will promote future programming.
