Chabad Tells Men: Marry at 20


Dozens of Chabad yeshiva heads and other influential figures worldwide have signed a call to men studying in yeshivas to marry by the age of 20, and not wait until the age of 23 or 24 as is common now. "Our letter is intended to awaken each and every one of us to deal with the situation that has come about lately, to free ourselves of certain world assumptions, and to cling to opinions and views that are based upon the foundations of Torah and Hassidut," they wrote.
