JOFA, in conjunction with Yeshivat Maharat and Yeshivat Chovevei Torah Rabbinical School, runs a 4-day intensive workshop for kallah teachers unique in its emphasis on a broad range of halakhic positions and open and frank discussions on sex. Kallah teachers are often on the front lines of preparing a kallah for her married life, and in some cases for her first sexual encounter. Thus, kallah teachers can have a significant and lasting impact on the couple's sexual experience.
This workshop provides kallah teachers with a broad range of halakhic perspectives and affords them a greater comfort level in dealing with sexual issues. Participants spend time looking at primary halakhic sources and also explore some of their preconceived biases and come to understand the wide range of the human sexual response cycle.
