Jewish Marriage Education
Building a Home According to Torah
JewishFamily.org is the official website of Jewish Marriage Education (JME).
JME was established in 1993 by Rabbi Yirmiyohu* and Rebbetzin Tehilla Abramov** with the encouragement and guidance of HaRav Shlomoh Zalman Auerbach zt”l and HaRav Yosef Sholom Elyashiv zt”l. The Rabbanim were consulted regarding all of the organization’s activities.
Working on a totally voluntary basis, JME’s primary aim is the enhancement of holiness in the homes of Am Yisroel according to the traditions of our great sages throughout the generations. Courses have been given to thousands men and women counselors all over the Jewish world, including Eretz Yisrael, USA, Canada, England, Belgium, France, Switzerland, South Africa and South America.
These counselors are equipped to teach brides and review with married women about Modesty, Taharat HaMishpacha, Shalom Bayit, Mothering, Parenting and insights into Jewish femininity – the essence of a Jewish marriage. This has resulted in enhancing the central role of Jewish women.
JME is dedicated to enriching the Jewish community with a deeper understanding of marriage and family life, according to Torah.
JME publishes and distributes material, and conducts lectures, seminars and training programs pertaining to the enhancement of Jewish family life.
These programs have a profound effect on creating stability in the sacred institution of marriage and the home, which has been so tenuous in today’s generation.
