Let's be honest: It happens. Many a couple lose the spirit that they felt at their chasunah. All too often, things get stale.

How do we find the joy in our marriages, once again? How do we regenerate the spirit? How do we become better spouses? How does the oneness of the phenomenon of ishto kigufo and baalah kigufah proliferate?

Many words of mussar are inevitably distant from us. Too delicate and fragile to allow such words to permeate our being, we build mental walls of protection around ourselves that are impenetrable. In truth, these are not walls that protect us. They are destructive and debilitating as they outlaw change and rejuvenation. They are particularly damaging when they impinge on the delicate relationship of marriage.

What does work?

Rabbi Yehoshua Kurland is a renowned educator and bestselling author who, for decades, has successfully penetrated hearts and broken through barriers with his inimitable style of teaching. His genius lies in his ability to share deep and powerful messages in conjunction with humorous stories and jokes in the spirit of the classic Talmudic milsa d'bidichusa.

 

Through his wit, we become open to his teachings.

Through his wisdom, we become open to change and inspiration.

It is time to re-discover simchah in our marriages.

It is time to celebrate our lives together and the symphony of marriage.

It is time to recognize that the happiness we felt under the chupah can last a lifetime and that indeed, it is always: A Time to Dance.

Traditional Judaism considers the hair of a married woman erotic. As a result, married Jewish women are generally expected to cover their hair, except in front of her husbands, and sometimes in the company of other women. For most of Jewish history this practice was not disputed - mainly because society at large also considered it immodest for women to let their hair down in its city streets. However, as the general definition of modesty has changed in the last two centuries, Jewish women have followed suit, debating the necessity of covering their hair in a world that remains 'uncovered.' Today, most observant, married Jewish women cover their hair in some way although a vocal minority declines to do so at all. Hair covering has, therefore, become the bellwether for religiosity, turning practice into politics. Sources dispute the when,
