Sheva Brachot And How They Roll!

Rivki D. Rosenwald Esq., CLC, SDS 

 Sooo people leave a gentile wedding and everyone stands there throwing flakes of rice after the bride and groom. But with us it's different.  We throw -ourselves -after the bride and groom, continuously, for the next seven days. They just can't shake us. 

We call it Shevah brachot! Seven blessings. But are they feeling blessed or persecuted? Do the bride and groom love this endless round of celebrations or are they hoping everyone would just go home. 

“They” do a romantic honeymoon trip to somewhere exotic. We drag "ours "to Shloime's kosher restaurant and bring half the neighborhood along to ogle.  

Of course we do give them a little private time. After all she needs some space to figure out how to disseminate her gorgeous head of hair evenly beneath her new gorgeous head of hair. More importantly she needs time to decide which of her newly purchased outfits would look best for day 1, 2, 3,4,5,6, or 7, of marriage on display. 

Now let me say this there are certainly some amazing advantages to Shevah brachot. One is that the celebration doesn't end abruptly.  Otherwise -One minute you were the bride and groom the next minute you're just another old married couple! 

You don't suffer the syndrome -all dressed up and no place to go. You've got parties galore waiting for you.  

You are hailed as a queen and king for a week straight. After all -You have the rest of your life to be an anonymous nobody. This week - It's all about you!    

And honestly all day you, the new couple, can do whatever you like and hang out together.  

 But as the sun sets you better be heading to Brooklyn or Queens or NJ; wherever the meal is being held. Because 15 of your parents’ closest friends, from that particular area, just chipped in to make your parents happy and even came out to give you a blessing. So now-you certainly wouldn't want them to go the other way on that blessing thing!!  

The speeches are all about.... You. The humor is all about, and the celebration is all about So how can that be bad. 

Look at it his way “They" get one day of rice - thrown at them no less. You get seven nights of rice- prepared in every possible delicious fashion.

 So take my advice - enjoy the attention. You'll be alone together and figuring it all out before you know it. It's great to have all those blessings working for you!

And that's how the Shevah brachot roll!!

Ben Affleck & Jennifer Garner's Divorce 
Understanding the 5 Stages of marriage can increase your commitment when times are tough.


Ben Affleck's Oscar speech described the need for ‘work’ when it comes to marriage. His wife, Jennifer Garner, smiled through her tears and we thought that this couple really ‘got it’. They seemed to be the Hollywood couple who understood that there are no myths of ‘happily ever after’. They told us that we need to put effort into our relationships. Every marriage has its ups and downs – even (especially?) if you are Hollywood celebrities who seem to have it all. Ben acknowledged this to millions from the podium that night in 2013 as he addressed his wife: “I want to thank you…it is work but the best kind of work and there’s none I’d rather work with.” And Garner responded as she told reporters afterwards “I think he was saying, ‘Look, what we have is real and I value it above all and I’m in it with you and I know you are in it with me.’”

And now they announced they are getting divorced after 10 years of marriage.

No matter who you are or how many years you've been married, divorce is painful. If children are involved your lives are forever intertwined.

Divorce is sometimes the necessary choice to make. Some difficulties are insurmountable. One need not be a celebrity to grapple with addictions, abuse, and ugly altercations that create flames of dissension which consume both husband and wife. At times a man or woman reaches the breaking point feeling disrespected. When a couple realizes that they cannot continue to live together in peace, the Torah provides us with divorce as an option.

But we must never come to this decision lightly. Rabbi Elazar taught that the altar in the Temple sheds tears when a couple divorces. It is specifically the altar that is mentioned because these stones help us re-establish peace between man and His Maker and bring us close once again. Now that harmony has been lost, the altar itself weeps for the pain this couple has suffered. The Shechinah, presence of God, departs from a home where there is strife. The blessing of shalom bayis, peace in the home, is gone. This precious blessing in a home should never be taken for granted.

It is possible to breathe new life into a marriage, despite some stormy seasons. Of course, this is not an easy path. Creating a marriage that endures is a humbling experience. Sacrifice, intense efforts, internal character growth, commitment, and a true desire to make this marriage work all help the quest for rebuilding the spiritual sanctuary we call ‘home’. This journey is not for those who simply give up.

5 Stages of Marriage

In my last article ‘Ben Affleck on Marriage’, I spoke about the ways we can work on our marriage and help it grow stronger through the years. Keep updated, make your marriage your priority, show respect, do small acts of daily kindness, and be positive were the 5 labors of love.

Recognizing that marriage has its stages gives us the wisdom to keep laboring and not give up hope when times are tough.

1. The Passion

Intense feelings of desire and love, seeing your spouse as ‘The One’, and anticipating spending time together helps you commit to one another. Little irritations don’t bother you. Excitement and discovery of this new person in your life brings you positive energy and attitude.

2. Letting Go of the Fantasy

Difficulty sets in when you realize that (s)he is only human. Your spouse can get you nervous with his nightly snoring or her too loud laugh. You bicker. She seems too sensitive, while he seems indifferent. Disappointment sneaks in. You wonder if you made the right decision. Children may add to the equation as you argue about childcare, household chores and finances.

Jennifer Garner herself said last year, “When we had our first child we were babies. It happened so fast, I hardly remember what we were like before the kids got here.”

You are now at a crucial crossroads in your marriage. Are you able to let go of the fantasy? The journey starts here. Once you comprehend that for marriage to endure you need to set aside your Disney-like dreams and deal with reality you are ready to live as husband and wife. Getting married is not the destination point, it is only the beginning. The challenge is making it work.

3. Getting to Work

The labor of love begins. Working on a relationship means that you will be using spiritual muscles that you have hardly used before. Forgiveness, understanding, sensitivity, compassion, patience, expressing gratitude, humility are all character traits that help you reignite that spark of love. Each day you work another muscle-even if you are tired you don’t give up.

4. Finding Calm

You have discovered that it is okay to disagree as long as respect remains part of the equation. Communication grows as you refrain from put downs, snide remarks and hurtful gestures. You decide to put a positive attitude into the relationship by developing your ‘ayin tov’, your ‘positive eye’. Work on blaming less and listening to the other side more. Attend workshops and Torah classes, read articles and surround yourself with friends who encourage harmony.

Some insightful questions to ask yourself:

  • Do I always need to win? Can I ever be wrong?
  • Do I raise my voice, insult, degrade or walk away?
  • Am I overly sensitive to criticism? Do I hear another point of view?
  • Am I self-centered? Arrogant? Impatient?

5. Peace

You have resolved to stop trying to makeover your spouse. You have come to a place of appreciation for the joy that love brings. As years pass, you enjoy each other’s company more. Instead of growing apart, you have discovered your best friend. You share memories and dreams for the future. You have stopped struggling with your differences and instead focus on the treasure of having this other person in your life. Trust fills your heart. Acceptance grows along with a love that is mature yet tender. Even tough times frighten you less because your partner is at your side. You know that you will endure.

Sadly, many couples never allow themselves to reach the stage of peace. Crisis or disappointment arrives and we throw in the towel. Let’s remember that marriage is our greatest source of blessing. Homes filled with harmony becomes a resting place for God’s presence. Yes, it does take work. But the joy endures forever.



Someone Stole My Brain

Rivki D. Rosenwald Esq., CLC, SDS

Did your computer ever just shut down! Did your phone ever just not open? It's kind of like your car running out of gas, in the middle of a 6 lane highway. You're stuck, and overwhelmed, and ready to crash!

We are all so loaded with information. Yet we can easily lose access to it. And then- uuuuuhhhh, just the thought of it!  

 My friend told me her son just retired at age 25. Sounds young huh? Most people that age are still looking for their first job. So, did he hit it rich you wonder?! The answer - He was a computer technician!  Now you may think it's horrible to see people in dental pain or in therapy coping with a life crisis. Well, he said experiencing people in the intensity and trauma mode they went in to when their computer somehow failed , was so stressful he needed to regroup and start again. Can you relate to that?! Most people can. Everything is in that little box or littler one.  

Want to see my kids - where's my phone.

Want to see my bank account -where's my phone.

Want to see the weather outside -where's my phone.

No one even thinks to just look outside anymore. And trust me that's a sure fire method to assess the weather.  

We are so tied in to our phones and computers. We'd sooner leave our kid at home with someone we just met then entrust our phone to them. Kids are resilient, made to last, phones break in a minute.  

Without access- I can't cook anymore, my recipes are in there. I can't call any one, my numbers are in there. I can't go anywhere; my access to directions is in there. I can't think anymore, my brain is in there!  

We used to know where we were going, what highway led to what highway. Now we follow blindly. If we wind up in a ditch, a dead end, or China - well, we just google, activities to do in a ditch, dead end or China. What else can we do? We are not in control anymore. It's not our fault we didn't make it to the wedding. Google took me here, so this must be where I'm supposed to be! Wow if we could just have that kind of faith in Gd! 

We didn't use to know as much. That's true. Science, technology, medicine ...we are light years ahead. But turn off access and we are cavemen. We are storing everything instead of internalizing it.  We need to let more go in and stay in our heads rather than our instruments. Otherwise we are all reduced to assistants and office managers for our appliances. In other words light years ahead ....till there is a black out, then we are all in too much dark! 

So what's the antidote?  Put some pictures in an album! Listen to the route you are taking maybe even look at a map!  You can even try to WRITE a letter, rather than a text or email, before you lose that skill!  

Progress is not a bad thing unless it makes you regress.  Expand, don't just replace.  Be multifaceted. That way our brains will still feel useful. And we may not get as down when our stuff goes down!  Hey who knows- maybe my friend's son may even be willing to go back to work.  

My husband says soon our cars will be controlled by robotics. When they go down we will all be stuck in the middle of nowhere. Without the ability to get anywhere and clueless as to where we are.   So ... Just a Thought - It might be worthwhile to still have some manual skills and a working mind to apply them.



My Father’s Advice on Rekindling Love 
How to add more passion in your marriage.


Wedding season is upon us. How do we hold onto the spirit of those beginning days of marriage and harness that positive energy to keep our love alive?

A woman recently confided to me that 15 years of marriage have left her feeling bored. It’s not that conflict exists; there’s just a lack of passion. Many marriages fall apart not from an increase in fighting and strife rather a decrease in positive feelings. The relationship seems tedious. We grow tired and without realizing it move away from each other.

When we say that “marriage takes work” we must focus on the type of work that builds and does not destroy. I’ve spoken with husbands and wives who insist that they’ve put great efforts into their relationship. But after some discussion, they come to realize that all that they have been doing is fruitless labor.

What Does Not Work:

Trying to change our partner.

Marriage cannot be about looking to transform the person you live with. This causes more harm than good. You end up feeling resentful and angry. Think about how difficult it is to change oneself; now multiply that over and over. Realizing that you have not achieved results in your partner leaves you with a bitter taste for your relationship.

Bickering and Nagging

We can spend years discussing or squabbling about the same issue. We haven’t accomplished a thing. The conversation is replayed; we fall into the same old pattern. Instead of helping ourselves, we are slowly dismembering the love that we have.

What Does Work:

Recharge Your Relationship

Combat the feeling of boredom by plugging in to your sources of energy. What gets you excited? What would you look forward to doing? Which experience makes you feel joyful or gives you pleasure?

Instead of complaining that your spouse is boring, take the initiative. Surprise your spouse and plan time together doing something new; or an activity that motivates you to feel energized. Stop focusing on your spouse’s lack of drive and you be the one to breathe new life into the relationship.

Raise Your Partner

Too much time is spent knocking down those we love. Whether it be through verbal put downs, a sarcastic one liner or rolling our eyes, we dismiss and disparage without thinking.

It’s those moments when we extend ourselves that will help us recapture the magic. Studies show that idealizing one’s partner is a recipe for marital success. Think about giving a word of appreciation, a compliment and sharing a positive feeling about your spouse. Give warmth, a hug; make your spouse feel loved.

Instead of engaging in the negative, break the cycle and find something good to share. If you feel as if you are struggling to find that good trait then you have discovered where your work begins. Every human being has been blessed with a spark of the Divine. We simply forget how to focus on the greatness that lies within and instead fixate on that which irks us. Each of us needs to feel valued and cherished. Affection matters, both the physical and emotional.

Invest in Your Marriage

Any prosperous venture requires sweat, sacrifice, and tireless dedication. We don’t mind because we keep our eye on the goal. We understand that the more we give the better our chance of success. Marriage is no different.

Too many men and women mistakenly believe that if they are the ones giving, they are defined then as the ‘weaker one’. They stand back and wait to ‘get,’ thinking that the more they get the more powerful they stand in the relationship.

On the contrary. Waiting to ‘get’ makes one feel weak and dependent. Lack of giving leads to disinvestment and waning passion. Being a ‘giver’ means that you are an active investor in this venture. Setting aside time, sharing feelings - hopes, dreams and disappointments, listening without checking your iPhone, grooming oneself, writing a loving text or card just ‘because’, even taking on your spouse’s chore, all show that you care and want to make this marriage work. Nurture each other just as you did when you first met. Don’t think of this as your chore; think of it as your passion.

Eyes Never Change

There is one last piece of advice I recently received on rekindling the spark of love that I’d like to share with you. These words of wisdom came to me from my father 20 years after he left this world.

I received a call that a woman I knew was sitting shiva for her father. We had grown up together many years ago as little girls on Long Island. My parents had been her family’s Rabbi and Rebbetzen and there was a sense of great warmth and closeness between us and the congregation. Of course I wanted to express my feelings of loss.

I took my seat in the shiva house waiting for the mourner to acknowledge my presence as is the custom. Though we hadn’t seen each other for over 30 years it took just a moment as recognition dawned upon her face. She opened her mouth in astonishment and gently told her mother who I was.

“You had a beautiful father,” I said. “He always had a kind word and a smile on his lips. And I remember his eyes. He had such beautiful green eyes.”

Her eyes filled.

“You know that I have my father’s eyes?”

I looked closely. I had never realized it but she did.

“And do you know what?” she added. “Every day I wake up and look at my eyes in the mirror and remember the words your father gave us under the chuppah. Can I share them with you?”

I nodded, and she took out her wedding album showing me a photo of a young couple enveloped in love and magic with my father standing before them.

“Your father told us that years will pass and the day may come when we look at each other and feel as if we somehow don’t recognize one another. That seems impossible now, it’s true. But he would like us to recall his words and when that day may come just take a moment. Don’t speak. Don’t say a word. Just look at one another, look into each other’s eyes. Because eyes never change. And then we will remember. So often through the years we drew upon your father’s words. We just stopped, looked into each other’s eyes and reminded ourselves of the magic.”

Now it was my turn for my eyes to fill.

What a feeling for me, to hear my father’s words to this bride and groom from years ago that I had never heard before.

Yes, it is possible to still feel love and passion. Develop a positive relationship. There will always be some negative but work on maximizing the good and minimizing the difficulties. Your actions will neutralize the tough times. And take a moment to stare into each other’s eyes. Because eyes never change.




Joining Me On The Boardwalk?

Rivki D. Rosenwald Esq., CLC, SDS

Do you ever walk on the boardwalk? What's the appeal? The endless interesting sites? The sand, the ocean, the sand, the ocean, the sand, the ocean! Maybe the design of the planks? Diagonal, diagonal, diagonal!  Yet droves of people are pulled daily to take a walk on the boardwalk. Oh yes it's the breeze. Whoops forgot about that. That makes it all worth the trek to the waterfront! 

And did you ever notice the rituals there? Like you get no credit for walking the full length of the boardwalk, if you don't touch the railing at each end. Forget that your Fitbit said you walked 10 miles, if you didn't tap the railing it doesn't count! 

Walking has become -a feat you get major recognition for. It is no longer what we do when we place one foot ahead of the other. It is something we get credit for, just like attending the gym or working out with a personal trainer. It used to be merely how you got around but now if you put the words "let's go walking or "I'm going walking" before initiating this natural action it becomes a full on aerobic workout.  

It does make sense to take advantage of this inborn gift. After all, most other exercising involves a lot more expense and equipment. Let me give you this analogy. My son famously used to share the advantages of thumb sucking, as he refused to give it up. And after hearing his dissertation I actually was tempted to take it up. He said there's no better piece of equipment to deal with nerves, or to aid with relaxation or difficulty falling asleep. First he said it's always with you. You can never leave it home or be locked out of access to it. It's the right price- it cost nothing. It's calorie free. It travels free and it adds no weight. And it's always available 24/7 at your beck and call. Can you argue with any of that?! 

Now think about feet for walking, they kind of provide almost the same services and advantages. Don't take this lightly. Respect your feet. Take care of them well. Get them a pair of new shoes once in a while or treat them to a good soothing massage. You certainly don't want them walking out on you!  

Listen, you:

Bike and you need a vehicle

Hike and you need some gear

Gym and you pay a hefty fee

Slim and your trainers not free

Run and your knees take a pounding

Sun and you’re passively astounding

So just walk ---it's got all of the benefits and none of the pit falls. 

See you at the boardwalk?! Where life's a breeze!

They say things like, “Why does your skin jiggle or what are those blue lines on your legs"? Excuse us, why are they looking anyway, are they premed or something? We don't ask them "Why are you so small"?  In fact we reassure them, they'll be big and strong! 

They ask "Are we there yet", 2 minutes after we get into a car.  They know we are not just driving around the corner! Well truthfully we are probably thinking that same thing too!  It seems we can't check Waze fast enough!  

They say "I hate you" when we upset them. We say "I love you, but ", when they upset us!  Which seems the more natural reaction?!  

They say it like it is! Then we teach them to say it like they should!  

Both have a reality to them. There's purity in expressing with honesty. But, there's insensitivity to it, too. It is said that "honesty is the best policy"! However, there are qualifiers!  

Not out loud, except if it's nice.

Not spontaneously, unless it's nice.

Not uncensored, unless it's nice.

 Because honesty alone is not the goal. Rather, honesty, expressed with thought. 

Not every honest thought we have needs to be shared. There may also be more ways to get across the same thing.  

"Think before you speak"! Now that's great advice. Except that is not how a kid's mind operates. So kids will continue to amaze and entertain us, with their innocent and insulting queries, unless of course we muzzle them.  

Maybe that's why they say "kids should be seen and not heard". I actually love hearing them because ultimately they are kids and that gives them certain inalienable rights.  

But now what about us?  I think we need to remember that when we speak we no longer have 'kid dispensation'. We need to monitor what we say and how we say it! Because even though we are just kids stretched out a bit, we are the ones who have earned the licenses, the jiggly skin and the bald heads. And along the way we did not love people being blunt or thoughtless with us.

So when we communicate let's take that extra second to think does this need to be heard. And if so is there a better way to say it? Because guess what - "adults say the wildest things "-too!

Please bless me with an amazing year of walking with YOU.”

1.      G-D, You have an incredible vision for all of humanity and for me. I want to fulfill Your vision of greatness for me more and more. Please show me what I most need to see gently.

3. I want to transcend my greatest obstacles to fulfill Your vision for me. Please help me partner with You and go from a place of constraints to a place of expansiveness.

4. Please bless me with all the resources I need to fulfill Your vision for me. (health, clarity, relationships,  a job, place to live etc.)

5. I want to make You King by living myself more according to Your Definition of reality and Your instructions for living. Please guide me.

6. I resolve that I want to be connected to You, G-D, as the source of my wellbeing in life. And not rely on ANYTHING or ANYONE else. Please help me remember that no one else has power.

7. I resolve that this moment is the dawn of a new era in my life.

I stand before You, the Creator of the Universe, my loving Father, I look at the Rosh Hashanah prayer and of course I want to be connected to You as the source of all life, and be the beautiful person You created me to be; I definitely don’t want any of the mistaken choices of the past to stand in the way.  Please help me repair whatever needs fixing.  I want this year to be greater than any year I’ve ever had and I want to be a bigger person than I’ve ever been. Not just for my own sake but for the Jewish people and humanity. Please help me ask for the right things and help me understand Your loving answers.

I want today to be the dawn of a new era in my life.

G-d, You know what I’m facing inside and outside, please help me. “
