We are providing experienced kallah (bridal) teachers with comprehensive training for teaching issues of sexuality and intimacy, abuse prevention, body image, fertility and other sensitive topics that are not covered in traditional training.
Advanced Kallah Teacher Course
Kallah (bridal) teachers have traditionally focused solely on guidance relating to Jewish Family Purity laws. But today’s couples are looking for more from their teachers; students voice questions and concerns regarding sexuality and marital life, especially in communities that frown upon open discussions surrounding intimacy.
Through Eden’s Advanced Kallah Teacher Course, teachers learn to equip their students with tools to pave the way for a strong marital relationship and prevent conflict and tension. The course also provides teachers with resources to identify domestic or sexual abuse, and know how to intervene in such situations—empowering them not only to 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 and Dr. Diana Fletcher and include:
- Intimacy and Sexuality
- Birth Control Methods and Halakha
- Healthy Body Image and Self-Esteem
- Pleasure and Desire
- Fertility Impediments
- Identifying Abuse
- Shalom Bayit (Marital Harmony)
- Health Issues
The course spans over 30 hours. In addition to excellent presentations, participants spend a lot of time processing the information and figuring out how to best educate couples– pre and post wedding.
“I feel like I’m part of a network and there are so many things that I have never been exposed to before. I’ll be able to enrich my kallot so much even if I only share with them a fraction of what I’ve learned on this course.“–Gush Etzion course participant
