The Rhythm of Marriage with Avrum Nadigel – Meaningful Date Night


At this Meaningful Date Night with Avrum Nadigel (bio below) he delves in to why it’s good to not always be “in time” with your partner. In this irreverent, blistering talk on the purpose and challenge of marriage, Avrum takes us on a clear and bracing journey into why what we think is marriage may just be the opposite of true. In this talk we jump in mid-sentence, where he opens by asking the question why when you see a band play, does the drummer count everyone in at the beginning of a song…?

Check out Avrum’s bio and amazing books and resources here.
