This 4-part class is a crash course on everything you need to know about Jewish weddings! The course is designed for young adult couples who plan to get married within the next year. Two of the classes will be taught by Rabbi Oren Hayon and will focus on the rituals and traditions of Jewish weddings, and some of the basics of creating a Jewish home. The other two classes will be led by Hillel’s clinical counselor Danica Bornstein, who will focus on keys to healthy relationships. This course will meet for four consecutive weeks, and will take place March 11th, March 18th, March 25th, and April 1st. It will be a great opportunity to learn about wedding traditions and make friends with fellow couples who are going through a similar planning and learning process. Any engaged couples - gay or straight, both Jewish or interfaith - are welcome to enroll! Rabbi Oren Hayon serves at the Greenstein Family Executive Director of Hillel UW.
