Life Together – Marriage and Contracts in Religions and Cultures

Tour for School Students

This workshop is part of the program surrounding the temporary exhibition "The Creation of the World: Illustrated Manuscripts from the Braginsky Collection", that is on show at the Jewish Museum Berlin from 4 April to 3 August 2014.

What is written in a Jewish marriage contract? Who marries whom and why? Who or what can separate the marriage? And how does it deal with couples of different faiths or of the same sex? We present historical Jewish marriage contracts and discuss ways of living together from today’s perspective.

If you would like to learn more about the the subject of "marriage and life together", we are happy to arrange dialog partners of different religions who you can visit at community places (church, synagogue, mosque, etc.) as a follow-up after the workshop.
