Beyond the Chuppah is a hands-on guide for enriching Jewish and interfaith relationships. Based on the proven Prevention and Relationship Enhancement Program (PREP), the book shows couples how to recognize the special issues that are unique to Jewish and interfaith relationships and learn the skills they need to create a marriage that's intimate, loving, and fun. Using the practical tools found in this book, Jewish couples will discover how to "fight right" to resolve conflicts, improve their communication skills, do what's right for the children, and, most of all, appreciate the pleasure of each other's company.
"This important book combines modern social-scientific research and traditional Jewish wisdom to help couples resurrect the buried promises of friendship and responsibility, and the joy of love. The old can be renewed, and the new can be hallowed. It offers concrete ways for couples to create constructive and affirmative relations. It is rooted in a deep conviction that it is never too late to build again, to hope again, to love again."
—Rabbi Harold M. Schulweis, author, For Those Who Can't Believe
"This much-needed book combines proven research on marital relationships with special insights on Jewish belief systems, making it both culturally sensitive and very sound in terms of what really helps couples save and improve their marriages. For anyone in a Jewish couple, this book is a lifesaver and truly a mitzvah!"
