What's New in the Guide

Tikkun HaBriet

Tikkun HaBriet (Healing the Covenant), the only Jewish-based program that helps give struggling couples (and those stuck in a rough patch) another chance to redefine their marriage. This program begins the process of examining your goals and values and teach some new tools to rebuild into your loving relationship. Tikkun HaBriet is based on another faith's program that has been around for 40 years. Couples of all faiths, interfaith or no faith are welcome to attend. Without attention and care, marriages wither and couples slowly and quietly drift apart or are often torn apart by health, financial events or hurtful actions. Far too many couples live in misery, no longer feeling the joy of their once loving relationship. If you are experiencing challenges in your marriage, the Tikkun HaBriet Program may be able to help give your marriage another chance. Couples come to Tikkun HaBriet for many reasons, but you will never be asked why you are attending or be required to share.
