The special times of the Jewish year can be a framework for your life as a couple. More than just calendar commitments, the Jewish holidays carry with them a view of what is important in life, a set of assumptions that can challenge and deepen the way we think about relationships. This inspiring and practical guidebook helps you to understand your life as a couple in the context of the themes of Jewish holidays (Yom Kippur, Purim, Pesah, Sukkot, Shabbat): forgiving and growing; playing, laughing and taking risks; coming home, finding freedom; blessing bounty, facing impermanence; pausing to bless what is; and more. Drawing from ancient and contemporary texts, Jewish tradition and personal stories, Rabbi Nancy Fuchs-Kreimer and Rabbi Nancy H. Wiener provide creative exercises, rituals and guided discussions that help you make connections to tradition, community and each other. By experiencing the Jewish holidays as times to focus on your relationship, you'll find renewed meaning in these holy celebrations and new opportunities for spiritual growth all year long.
