This book is for people who wish to transform their engagement from simply a period of planning details to a meaningful passage in their lives. It is a guide for couples utilizing the wisdom and traditions of Judaism in order to strengthen their relationship and begin building their life together.
Drawing from a wealth of Jewish texts and traditions, Meeting at the Well focuses on three major issues with which to frame the modern engagement period: the process of moving from two individuals to one couple; the common challenges and "speed bumps" that couples hit along the way, including approaching intimacy, discussing finances, and dealing with families; and the ways to bring the myriad of Jewish engagement rituals into planning and preparing the wedding. This one-of-a-kind resource is a must-have for any couple planning a Jewish life together.
