Kallah classes are a must for every chassidic bride. But how about the follow-up?
A crowd of 70 young married women met in Crown Heights this past Thursday evening for an event titled “After the Kallah Class,” discussing common issues and topics in marital life.
Held at the Gutnick residence, the speaker was Rivka Sidorsky, a licensed psychotherapist who specializes in marital intimacy.
Sidorsky discussed the sensitive and crucial topic of intimacy from a psychological, as well as a physiological standpoint.
She started out with basic information from the health aspect and concluded with frequently asked questions in the frum community.
After the lecture, women got to ask questions, discuss, and mingle around the refreshment table.
“The lecture was conducted in such a modest manner,” commented one of the attendees. “For the subject content, that was really impressive. There should definitely be more events like this.”
It was the first event organized by Jewish women’s forum Balaboostas.com. The lecturer was introduced by Mrs. Fraidy Yanover .
“The feedback from the women who attended was superb – and it was a great success,” said Bracha Bard-Wigdor, creator of the online community. “I hope that this is just the beginning of many more such events in the future.”
