Making Marriage Work


Marriage, like life, is a process...

and enjoying the process is the key. Led by licensed clinical therapists, rabbis and financial advisors, Making Marriage Work classes provide a safe, open environment in which couples learn to share, develop and enrich intimate, loving relationships. Couples will learn communication skills and conflict resolution techniques necessary to strengthen their marriage. Topics include: the meaning of love and commitment, the effect of personal histories and personalities on the relationship, parents, in-laws, friends, time management, sexuality, family planning, money management and more. Jewish values and traditions provide a strong context to this enlightening experience.
