abstract_water_1920x1200The Kallah Teacher Training Course, taught by Rebbetzin Peshi Neuburger, a renowned Kallah teacher, took place this summer during the Nine Days for the third year in a row, at the Teaneck Mikvah. Seventeen women attended the seminar in person, and several via Skype from distant states and Canada. The intensive two and half day course provides a clear model of how to teach a Kallah and offers time to answer many questions that arise. Rebbetzin Neuburger, in her gentle way, shares Halachic, Hashkafic and anecdotal material which is invaluable to a novice Kallah teacher and a great enhancement for those women who have some experience in this area. A tour of the beautiful Teaneck Mikvah with detailed information is given by the Administrator of the Mikvah. In the last three years, over 70 women, mostly wives of pulpit rabbis, have taken this course. It provides them with an opportunity to network and share with their peers, to learn from each other’s experiences and to support each other. Many of the participants had Rebbetzin Neuburger as their Kallah teacher when they got married. They come back to learn from a master Kallah teacher. The participants leave the seminar feeling charged with new knowledge, energy and passion for their teaching.
