• Frankel Shul & Anshei Moshe Sponsor ‘Communication Workshop’

    On Sunday, Chof Sivan the Frankel Shul and Congregation Anshei Moshe are sponsoring a workshop for married couples given by the Shalom Workshop • Full Story

    The Shalom Workshop has been providing couples within the frum community with couples’ communication workshops for over seven years. The workshop is given to married and engaged couples throughout the New York and New Jersey area, at absolutely no cost to participants. The syllabus is based on a national evidence – based program and has been specially modified to suit the needs and sensitivities of the frum community.

    “This workshop really helped me communicate more effectively”, relates Sarah, a married woman from Monsey. “It helps me stay on the same page as my husband emotionally.” Chaim, a chosson from Lawrence agrees. “The workshop gave me a better understanding of myself as well as my kalla. It taught us how to see things from each other’s perspective, and made us more empathetic and appreciative of each other.”

    The workshop also helps couples negotiate behavior change in a way that will be effective, and well- received. It help reduce frustration and resentment, and provides skills for feeling close and connected to one another. “I was so frustrated,” explains Chana, a participant from Passaic. “We were stuck in a rut and had no idea how to move forward. Shalom Workshop gave us tools that help us both feel heard, understood, and supported. We can’t thank you enough!”

    The Shalom Workshop has the haskamos of noted rabbanim and therapists including Rav Reuven Feinstein and Rabbi Abraham J. Twerski.

    Incredibly, Shalom Workshop presenters are all volunteers, trained by Shalom Task Force. They are all experienced and sincere, dedicated, and professional. The volunteers give the workshop in either their own homes, or in Shuls and other community centers, making attendance as convenient as possible for participants.

    “The mission of Shalom Workshop to teach healthy couples these skills at whatever stage of the relationship they are” explained Mrs. Basya Kovacs, Director of Shalom Workshop. “By attending a Shalom Workshop, you are really giving yourselves a gift – one that will last long after the workshop is over.”

    The amazing part about this program is that it is completely free for participants. Because it is grant funded, couples need not pay out of pocket for this valuable service, which is why we encourage couples to take advantage of this opportunity while they can. To find out about upcoming Crown Heights events, including the one on the 20th of Sivan (June 7) at the Frankel Shul, please call 212-742-1141 or go to
