In response to the pressing needs of young Chassanim and in consultation with many prominent Florida Rabbonim, a new and exciting program in Miami will give Chassanim the appropriate resources to enable them to meet the challenges of marriage in the contemporary world.
In addition to the laws of Taharas Hamishpacha, in today’s world our Chassanim must be given the tools that will enable them to live meaningful and successful lives, according to Torah and Chassidus.
Says founder Rabbi Yossi Srugo: I would like to share with you a small sample of the calls I have received from Chassanim after their weddings:
“Right after I got married, my wife got pregnant. Within a few months I went from being a Bachur in yeshiva to being a husband and a father. It was frightening…”
“We got married and right away I started to get stressed out about money – what will I do for work, etc., and that affected my Shalom Bayis…”
“I had many uncomfortable intimate questions and I didn’t know who to ask. I wish I had somebody to turn to…”
“My wife has very big expectations. I can never be what she wants me to be…”
“I have internet-Shmutz problems and it’s affecting my marriage…”
The Miami Chosson Center will provide every Chosson-in addition to Halachos and Hashkafa- a place where he will prepare himself, for an entire week, to assume his role as a married man, a father and a provider. He will attend seminars and one-on-one sessions led by qualified rabbis and teachers in an exciting and Chassidishe atmosphere. Most importantly, these young men will emerge from the program with clear guidelines of how to give their marriage the practical and spiritual foundation that will bring their new family a life of Shalom Bayis, which is the goal of a Chasidishe marriage.
MCC will be addressing these and many other subjects:
What is the purpose of marriage?
How will my life change after I get married?
What is love? Emotional and physical intimacy
How to deal with anxiety
Respect and safety within marriage
How will I support my family?
