British philosopher Zygmunt Bauman argues that we live in a "fluid time" as opposed to the "hard times" - when values, principles and processes were clear and enduring. Today, every moment is a moment of irrevocable change; change and uncertainty are the only constants. In such an environment, what are the challenges posed to the union of two people? Is it true that during "fluid times" family transforms itself from a stable institution to a temporary coincidence? What will be the future of the traditional family?

Rabbi Moishe Leib Kolesnik(Ivano-Frankivsk) and Greek Catholic priest Fr. Tikhon (Sergey) Kullback(Donetsk / Lviv) pondered these issues. Bohdan Yaskevych, psychoanalytic and legal advisor (Lviv) moderated.

Event is a part of the "Ketubah. Jewish family traditions and traditional families" lecture series.
