Publisher: Jewish Lights

Through the holiday cycle we have seen that life is a complex weave of light and darkness, bitter and sweet, striving and surrendering. The twisted candle reminds us that as a couple our two lives have become intertwined as one. Two souls enter a partnership, interwoven yet always distinct, joined by a third strand, the Divine Presence. As we perform the ritual of Havdalah, we hold our hands up to the flame and catch the reflection of the last light on our fingertips. We pray that the light will continue to shine through our words and deeds, in our homes and in the world. —from Chapter 9

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:

Forgiving and Growing—Yom Kippur Playing, Laughing and Taking Risks—Purim Coming Home, Finding Freedom—Pesah Blessing Bounty, Facing Impermanence—Sukkot Pausing to Bless What Is—Shabbat …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.

In American culture, the question of your love is front and center. Most books written for couples focus on you: how happy you are, how satisfying your relationship can be. In this book we begin with you and your relationship but we do not end there. —from the Introduction

This innovative guidebook focuses on Jewish teachings and how the wisdom of the Jewish tradition can strengthen your committed relationship and make your life together richly rewarding.

Offering a new perspective on Jewish life for couples at any stage in their lives together, Rabbi Nancy Fuchs-Kreimer and Rabbi Nancy Wiener draw from the metaphors, concepts and values inherent in the Jewish holiday cycle to address topics important to your life together: communication, forgiveness, anger, play, sex, loss and change. They identify those aspects of Judaism that speak to the complexities of living life as a couple.

At the end of each chapter you’ll find exercises and suggestions for incorporating ritual, learning and loving-kindness into your time together, helping you reach out beyond yourselves and enrich your shared life as a couple.
