The Ceremony, The First Year, And The Journey That Follows
Based on the wisdom of our Sages and the author’s years of experience working with couples, this fascinating book serves as a guide for couples who want to travel the path toward greater closeness and deeper love. The Jewish wedding ceremony teaches us about the dynamics of a relationship between husband and wife.
The stories of the Torah shed light on the complex interplay between respecting our partner's individuality while sharing intimacy with them. The teachings of the Chassidic Masters reveal how devoting ourselves to our spouse leads us toward our greatest fulfillment.
Written by experienced therapist David Lester, this unique book will help couples who are preparing for their life together, as well as those who have been together for decades and want to continue growing. It is also a wonderful resource for rabbis, educators, and therapists.
