RJJ Journal

The new issue of the Journal of Halacha and Contemporary Society (RJJ Journal) is out and it starts off with a short but powerful article by the prominent posek R. Feivel Cohen. He writes about dating. His main point is that it is a mitzvah to get married and people should approach dating with the same zerizus (zealousness) with which one approaches any other mitzvah. One should not postpone dates because it is "busy season" at work or one is planning a trip. He also touches on the importance of marrying even after the child-bearing years and of being realistic in expectations and dating someone within one's age range.

The issue has more interesting articles but, most interesting of all, is the new website for the journal that continues supplementary material and the full and expanded text of certain articles: RJJJournal.com

Kudos to David Shabtai (co-author of an article in the current issue) for developing this website (with permission from the editor).
