Yeshiva Sha’arei Zion’s eight-part Chinuch and Shalom Bayis Workshop Series was attended by close to 200 parents and community members last week. The event, which was open to the broader Jewish community of Queens, featured a fully catered dairy dinner and interactive workshops presented by renowned educators on topics of parenting and marital harmony.
On Motza’ei Shabbos, Rabbi Jonathan Rietti spoke on “Teaching Children Resilience in a Challenging World,” and expounded on the topic with real-life examples and relatable anecdotes, leaving the audience with plenty of food for thought and powerful take-home points. On Sunday night, Rabbi Igal Haimoff spoke about the paramount importance of investing in one’s marriage and the tremendous blessings that come to one who actively pursues marital peace and harmony. “Creating Safety in Marriage – Expressing Feelings Constructively” was the topic of the class, and included tips and tricks for how and when to express feelings to your spouse in a way that it will be well-received.
