Trains teachers to convey through a halakhic understanding along with the resources to build healthy relationships in the first year of marriage. Eden's Basic Kallah Teacher Training prepares women to become kallah teachers with a solid understanding of the halakha, who can equip their students with tools to pave the way for a strong marital relationship. In addition to the halakha, the course prepares teachers to deal with a variety of issues that can arise, with a focus on challenges around the wedding and the first years of marriage. It also provides teachers with resources to identify domestic or sexual abuse, and know how to intervene in such situations- empowering them not to only potentially save a marriage, but even save a life. Topics covered in the course are taught by experts in their fields, such as Dr. David Ribner, Rabbanit Shani Taragin, Dr. Yardena Hyman and Dr. Diana Fletcher and include:

  • Intimacy and Sexuality
