Jewish Family Purity 101 Course

About the Course
Reframing Taharat Hamishpacha as a practice for us, not imposed on us.

This course is intended for Jewish women who do not have previous knowledge about the practices of Taharat Hamishpacha. This is an opportunity to connect with your Jewish female essence in a well rounded manner. We will start with the fundamentals and thoroughly move through each step and the various practices with the objective of establishing a solid foundation. This deep knowledge yields women who are connected with their traditions, body, and power confidently. Women will exit this course feeling halachically comfortable, knowledgeable, empowered.

 

***You must be accepted into this course.***

Group classes are offered by demand only. The group setting provides a unique opportunity for Jewish brides to connect with each other as they experience the same monumental life experience.

Often Kallah lessons can be awkward or outdated. Not for me!
I was lucky to learn with Malka Chana who is open, honest and judgment-free. We talked about everything. It was the best choice of my engagement period.
