Keeping Intimacy Alive in the Parent Years

A Relationship Workshop for Couples with Dr. Jenni Skyler

The Jewish tradition views intimacy between partners as a great mitzvah; it also views having children as a great mitzvah. Is this some kind of joke? Couples seeking to maintain intimacy in the busiest years face great difficulties. Has sexual intimacy been relegated to the bottom of the list? Do your kids and your busy lives challenge your ability to connect more frequently?

Please consider joining us for a fun and educational two-class workshop that offers practical tools to help boost and maintain emotional and sexual intimacy. Rabbi Josh Rose will share a bit of insight from the Jewish tradition and the bulk of the teaching will be by Dr. Jenni Skyler, Ph.D., MSEd and founder and CEO of The Intimacy Institute in Boulder (www.TheIntimacyInstitute.org), author of “Sexy Shabbos” in the Boulder Jewish News and the “Sophisticated Sex” column in the Boulder Weekly.

The workshop is on these Wednesdays:  May 19th and 26th, 6:30-8:30 pm, at the Har HaShem North Building (3950 Baseline Road).  $36 per couple.  Couples MUST RSVP by May 12 to Robert Farr at r.farr@harhashem.org or 303-499-7077, ext.13
