Tikkun HaBriet

Tikkun HaBriet (Repairing the Covenant), a Jewish marriage recovery program, the only Jewish-based program that helps give struggling couples another chance in their marriage. This program begins the process of putting back the pieces of your marriage and teach the tools to rebuild a loving relationship. Tikkun HaBriet's origin is based on a similar faith-based 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 hurtful actions. Far too many couples live in misery and do not know the joy of a 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 decide to participate in the program for many reasons, but you will never be asked why you are attending or be asked to share in any group setting.
