Latest Question & Answer

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.

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]
