PHILADELPHIA, PA.-Many Jewish women in their twenties and thirties, interested in marriage and having children, are apparently facing a shortage of marriageable Jewish men for a variety of reasons.

This was among the many issues discussed at a recent inter-havurah retreat entitled, “Why do Jewish Men and Women Love/Hate Each Other?” held at Fellowship House Farm in Pottstown, Pennsylvania December 24-27, 1981. The retreat, attended by some 90 young Jewish men and women from havurot on the East Coast, explored the dynamics of Jewish male-female relationships today, based on both traditional Jewish values and the vast changes in sex roles and self images brought about by the women’s movement.
