Special Events


Mt. Sinai Resident Scholar Series continues! Join us on Monday July 18, at 8:45 pm in the Multipurpose Room for part 2 of this conversation:

Traditional Education Meets Modern Expectation-Differing Expectations in Contemporary Relationships, taught by Dr. Rivka Press Schwartz.

    • Differing expectations as to the role that men and women inhabit at home and in the world is often the source of much tension and conflict in relationships - marital and otherwise. These expectations are formed by our upbringings, religious orientation, and experiences.  Indeed, we may not be fully conscious of them. If expectations in this area are not aligned, the result can be significant discord and unhappiness. Drawing upon sociological research about how these issues play out in contemporary society, this series will explore the role that gendered expectations play in our ability to form stable and satisfying relationships.
