Women looking to explore love and marriage from a Jewish perspective will have a new resource beginning this December.
The Rosh Chodesh Society, the Chabad-Lubavitch movement’s Rohr Jewish Learning Institute women’s division, will kick off SoulMates, a seven-session course that begins Dec. 14 and runs through April 2015. Pulling from different Jewish sources, the course will offer participants the chance to examine the intricacies of love through a Jewish lens.
“Anyone who attends this course will leave every session not only inspired, but with tangible, concrete tools to enhance their relationship,” said RCS director Shaindy Jacobson in a release. “Whether they are currently married, considering someday tying the knot or simply seeking to better understand the spiritual root of love and marriage, SoulMates will forever change how they think about marriage in all its beauty and complexity.” The course, which will run once a month in more than 200 locations around the world, is open to women at all stages of life and all levels of Jewish knowledge.
“Today, the timeless teachings of our 3,000-year-old tradition on love and marriage are more relevant than ever,” said Rochel Kaplan, RCS’s Baltimore facilitator and director of the Aleph Learning Institute at the Lubavitch Center of Pikesville. “This course will challenge us to think deeply about ourselves and our relationships and give us practical tools to enhance them. It will allow us to see marriage in a whole new light and experience it with new meaning.”
Kaplan will teach the course on Sunday evenings at 6701 Old Pimlico Road from 8 p.m. to 9:15 p.m.
