Couples Event with Rabbi Leiff and Jan Silverman

The Small Wonder’s inaugural couples event will be one to remember. I walked into the office and a feeling of calm washed over me. The beautiful décor and the warm atmosphere of all the couples that were there calmed my initial inhibition of attending. The buffet that was set up would have made any chassan and kallah smile.
The first speaker, Jan Silverman, health educator at Women’s College, gave an uplifting speech on how to deal with comments from ones friends and family. As I looked around the room, and saw people nodding, I know that we can all take from her insightful words of wisdom. Rabbi Moshe Tuvia Leiff, Rav of Agudah of Avenue L, Brooklyn, N.Y., gave us all the chizuk that we needed. His personal touch gave the couples a chance to form a kesher with a rav that truly understands what they are feeling. Everyone around me had a smile on their face as they left and we all pledged to do this again soon. I can see how the couples of Small Wonders are becoming a family of our own. Looking forward to the next event…
