Episode #2 of Dear Yoetzet Podcast

What are the challenges when two people of different backgrounds get married?  Should they integrate halachic practice and customs from both of their communities into the home you build together? What does halacha have to say about this? How can you navigate discussing this with each other with respect and admiration? Our letter writer asks these questions and more. Join Yoetzet Halacha Lisa Septimus in conversation with guest Rabbi Joseph Dweck about differences in minhagim between Sephardim and Ashkenazim, whose minhagim should be followed when there’s an “intermarriage” and how to approach talking about these issues in your own relationship.
