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.

Jew in the City is now a franchise.
Yossi Klein Halevi’s Like Dreamers (Harper) explores the lives of seven Israeli paratroopers in the Six-Day War who, his subtitle suggests, “Reunited Jerusalem and Divided a Nation.” It offers a fascinating variation on the theme of Israel at a fateful crossroads, in search of itself, following the wondrously unifying moment at the Western Wall in June 1967 when Jewish national sovereignty in Jerusalem was restored for the first time in nineteen centuries.

“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.
