Jewish people have held an ideal standard for family life that is captured in the term "Shalom Bayit,” which signifies wholeness, completeness, and fulfillment. Ideally, traditional Jewish marriage is characterized by peace, nurturing, and chesed – loving kindness. Now, for the first time in history, there is a new science of love based on twenty years of scientific research. We teach the couples to access the emotional underpinnings of their relationship, recognizing they are attached to their romantic partner in the same way a child is on the parent for nurturing soothing and protection. The way to enhance a relationship is to be open attuned and responsive to each other and to reestablish emotional connection, ensuring a lifetime of love. What could be more important!
