As our world gets more and more complex and nuanced, so does shidduchim.
“Who is compatible? How to know? What to share, what not to, and how? What to find out? What is really important, what is less so? How does a relationship develop, and what can I consciously do to make it solid lifelong relationship?
So many important questions. And that is why more and more young people are taking the responsible step to really learn about all it takes to have a successful marriage – from the dating stage when the relationship begins, and then through the rest of their lives.
The first of its kind, ‘FIRST POINTS’ is a pre-dating course offered by the Adai Ad Institute for young bochurim post-shlichus and girls post-seminary, separately. The program provides tools and perspectives that will strengthen their marriages. It also serves as a helpful tool to navigate the shidduchim process.
Created through countless conversations with young Lubavitchers, parents, mashpi’im, mashpios, and professionals, the program was built with real hard data, real stories, and real experiences. Presented in 7 sessions, FIRST POINTS is designed for interactive discussions about marriage with straight talk – no euphemisms, no beating around the bush. Real answers to real questions. The small groups, in a round table format, ensure comfort for these discussions. Read more about the course here.
“It is gratifying to see so many young people taking a proactive approach to their marriages. It’s a testament that this program is addressing a real need,” said Mrs. Devora Krasnianski, developer of the courses.

The very name of the program, Adai Ad, expresses the vision: from the outset, marriages should be built to last forever and ever. Beginning with its signature ‘First Points’ course, the Adai Ad Institute hopes to grow and offer other Shidduchim and marriage related services.
