Course Overview

Lesson 1: Discovering Your Personal Mission Statement 

No business can function without a mission statement, and neither can you. This lesson will help you establish the foundation of a meaningful life — why you’re here, why you matter, and how you can make sense of the patterns of your thinking, behavior, and feelings.

Lesson 2: Marriage, Love, and Intimacy 

How can you nourish the richness and depth of a loving relationship? We’ll explore the spiritual factors that can make a relationship greater than the sum of its parts — with a passion that’s eternal, purposeful, comfortable, and which truly reflects our Jewish values and attitudes.

Lesson 3: Home and Family 

Building a home, raising a family — these are the most important sources of warmth and security in our lives. Learn how to nurture and strengthen these vital bonds that embrace us with comfort and connection.

Lesson 4: Work, Charity, and Wealth 

We all need to earn a living, but that doesn’t have to consign us to a plodding drudgery that leaves us feeling half-alive. We’ll explore the ins and out of job satisfaction, as well as ways to put money in its proper perspective and keep materialism from overpowering our G‑d-given, spiritual natures.

Lesson 5: Pain, Loss, and Anxiety 

Pain can intrude on our lives at any time. All-consuming, it is a call for attention that launches the natural process of healing. We'll explore ways of coping with difficulty, finding a balance between grieving for what has been lost and feeling hope for the future.

Lesson 6: Religion and Faith 

Faith is not only the stuff of childhood. It can open us up to the mystery of life, the wonder that defies reason. In this session, we work toward a personal grappling with truth as well as a more mature, dynamic relationship with our Creator.
