What are the requirements to be considered “eligible” to be a kallah teacher?

i hope there WILL BE eligibility requirements, otherwise anyone can just read the material and think they are qualified to be a kallah teacher!

Once you are doing this project I recommend that you ask newly weds what they wished their kallah teachers would’ve taught them. I could think of a few things that I wish I knew

I was going to do Machon Pua”h’s course next year (it’s the only one in my area) but if there is a Chabad course available I’d much prefer it.

In the olden days mothers taught their daughters about Taharas Hamishpacha! I personally know mothers who do I and I think it’s amazing! If you have a healthy relationship with your daughter whats the problem? Also, what’s so embarrassing about Taharas Hamishpacha?

Perhaps there can be some sort of certification, to counteract self-appointed “kallah teachers” who teach inappropriately instead of hashkafa.

Attendant Training?

When will the Attendant Training course begin on mikvah.org’s Mikvah University? It’s been in the works forever. Hope there will be a big announcement like this one for Kallah teachers. Thank you.

I would imagine that many young bochrim have no clue on what makes a good marriage, how they should treat their wives and what makes a responsible family man. I remember when I was a chosson, “chosson classes” dealt with the mechanics of Halacha and that was it. I was lucky B”H that I had a wonderful Mashpia who guided me in a good direction, but not all boys may have access to such a person.

AGREE WITH NUMBER 1!!

MANIS Friedman should be the one to guide kalla- and chosson teachers!! many of us feel that we have been misguided and wished we would have been taught things right- right from the start!!

From a mental health standpoint, do you realize there is something called “boundaries”?Your mother should be your mother and not your good buddy to discuss all sorts of “intimacy”issues.A teacher is more objective and can truly answer questions that perhaps a girl would not want to ask of her mother.That is what seems more healthy than a mom and daughter delving into all sorts of personal experiences.You think it’s ok for a mother to discuss her own marriage etc????I seriously think not.moms stay where you need to be and let the teachers do what they need to do.

Kallah teachers do not discuss their personal life with the kallahs they teach. But, the daughter might not feel comfortable asking her mother questions on the topic. (That being said, my kallah teacher was NOT my mother and I did not, ever, discuss the topic with either my kallah teacher OR my mother. Thank G-d, there were never any real “issues”. But some girls do have questions and issues . . . )

A kallah teacher and a mom

I have taught kallas for years. When my daughter became a kallah she asked me to teach her. I said that it might be embarrassing to learn these things from her mother. She said she would prefer to learn with someone she was not afraid to question. I taught her as I would any other kallah and she was a keen student. I told her that she should have a mashpiah or lady in mind to ask personal questions to after the wedding – because it would be a breach of her marital privacy to ask me. She agreed.
