Ancient Marriage Secrets Revealed

The Rohr Jewish Learning Institute is presenting what it calls a “provocative” new series of classes on the secrets of successful marriage.

Everyone is invited to attend the six-session course at Chabad of Alberta, presented by the JLI and taught by Rabbi Mordechai Groner. The course starts this coming week.

The Jewish Learning Institute says the Art of Marriage “will go far beyond platitudes, to cover topics at the heart of modern marriage. Does marriage still serve any purpose at all? How far should one go to make a marriage work? When is divorce the best option?”

“Included, as well, are Jewish bedroom secrets from ancient texts on how to increase intimacy in marital relationships.”

The Jewish Learning Institute says Judaism views a loving marriage as a spiritual as well as a human ideal.

It says the Art of Marriage shows students how to attain that for themselves and for their spouses, with timeless lessons from both modern and ancient Jewish, texts such as the Talmud and Zohar.

“Judaism venerates marriage and therefore has a long history of looking to enhance the marriage experience. The course is not only about providing techniques for success in marriage, it’s about changing your attitude toward your spouse and toward marriage in general,” says Groner.

The Jewish Learning Institute says the Art of Marriage is designed to appeal to students at all levels of Jewish knowledge, including those without any prior experience or background in Jewish learning.
