A Weekend To Remember: Reflections on the OU’s Marriage Retreat


We could go on and on about this special Shabbos. To sum it up, we learned that marriage is an endeavor that requires effort, tefillah and creativity. There are many aspects to a marriage that need to be constantly nurtured, evaluated and reevaluated, especially when there are so many outside forces – money issues, children, aging parents, illness, etc. – that can severely weaken even a good marriage.

The weekend turned out to be not only very educational but a great getaway as well. We look forward to going back to the next one.

The Landmans live in Baltimore where they are busy raising their children who range in age from 4 to 15. Judy is a preschool morah at Talmudical Academy and Dovid is a CPA and bar mitzvah rebbe.

In Israel, the judiciary has established itself as superior to ALL other branches of the government.

The Fifteenth Day of the month of Av became a day of national rejoicing. The moment that had seemed hopeless became the moment of Redemption.

I think the melodies in our religious services have a haunting sound to them that just permeates your guts and gets into your soul. If you have any musical inclination, I think they inspire you to compose.

Cavalier analogies to the Holocaust are unacceptable, but Huckabee’s analogy was very appropriate.

“You’re going where?! That sounds interesting. What is it?” This response we received from friends when we mentioned our plan to attend the Orthodox Union’s Marriage Enrichment Retreat this past July reflected the very same questions we were thinking. And it was with those thoughts that we went to the retreat – interested but unsure of what exactly we were getting into. A nice hotel, no kids, good food and maybe some interesting workshops.
