The Spiritual Component
Tikkun HaBriet is a Jewish Marriage Program
Couples of all faiths and those with no faith tradition are welcome and encouraged to attend. The program is not designed to convert anyone to a specific faith choice, but does reflect Jewish concepts. All faith choices are respected for their beliefs and encouraged to attend for the benefit of their marriage. The ultimate goal of Tikkun HaBriet is to help nurture healthier marriages.
For Couples of ALL Faiths
A team of three couples and a clergy presents the Tikkun HaBriet weekend. The presenting team members have grown through serious disillusionment, pain and conflict in their own relationships. They offer hope as they share their personal stories of struggle, reconciliation and healing. The presenting team shares the deep and personal hurts they have experienced. As Tikkun HaBriet is Jewish in origin, in most communities, the clergy member is a Rabbi. However, a Cantor or other Jewish scholar may take the place of the Rabbi on the presenting team.
Tikkun HaBriet is based on Jewish concepts, beliefs and morality. Tikkun HaBriet invites and encourages married couples of all faiths and those of no religious affiliation to share in this experience and to become an integral part of the program.
The weekend portion of the program is offered on scheduled weekends beginning Friday evening. There is a Kabalat service on Friday Evening and a closing Havdalah service late Sunday afternoon. While all attending the weekend are invited to participate in these religious services, attendance is optional.
Hope of Tikkun HaBriet
We believe that every marriage deserves the opportunity to survive, be healed and thrive as a covenant of life and love. Tikkun HaBriet is where we, as former struggling couples, found hope. Therefore, we are passionately committed to teaching and supporting other couples as they rediscover their love through personal growth and diligent hard work and the help of a supportive community.

The Tikkun HaBriet life preserver represents our hope to preserve the covenant of marriage via Tikkun HaBriet, giving one more chance of hope to hurting couples. The Torah reflects the center of Jewish life and the deep-seated stories of family dysfunction and the power of trust, forgiveness and love.
