In ancient times, most societies needed a secure environment to perpetuate their species. They needed a way to handle property rights and to protect blood lines. When did it all start? Which came first, polygamy or monogamy? What role, if any, did religion play in marriage? What was the significance of the vibrator, invented in the Victorian era? Learn the answers to these and other questions.

Fee: $50/Beth El Congregation members; $60/non-members. Registration is required for all participants.
