Marriage and relationships, like everything worthwhile in life, require dedication, effort and energy. You juggle family, career and volunteer work, and in the hustle and bustle of everyday life you may forget to slow down and enjoy the people you love. We yearn to love and be loved. For marriages and relationships to flourish and survive the daily frustrations, angers and hurts, love alone is often not enough – relationships must be nurtured. Mature love is expressed through giving, and through giving comes even greater love.
Open your eyes to see relationships in a new way. At an Evening of Cocktails & Sushi on Saturday, Dec. 3, at Chabad of Kendall/Pinecrest, New York Times bestselling author M. Gary Neuman will present Love and Intimacy: The Five Most Important Secrets Every Partner Should Know.
You will be enlightened. Neuman, a practicing licensed counselor and ordained rabbi, offers a caring, compassionate, no-nonsense approach to issues in marriage, family and personal growth. He will present insight from his newest novel, Connect to Love, The Keys to Transforming Your Relationship, which reveals his international research of the love relationships of more than 500 women. He has appeared many times on Today, Oprah, the View, National Public Radio and other programs.
Neuman is back by popular demand. He spoke at last year’s Spa for the Soul event. Dalila Maya, who attended his moving presentation, said, “Mr. Neuman was absolutely fantastic – definitely a must-see for the whole community. Last year, I was really inspired by his talk and I am excited that my husband will be able to participate this time.”
Family and the home are central to Jewish culture and religion and are great blessings. I invite everyone to attend An Evening of Cocktails & Sushi and take the first step in improving the relationships with those you love. At the same time, you will enjoy an evening with other adults in the community and indulge in refreshing cocktails, as well as delicious sushi prepared by Chef Michael Ben-Chetrit. An Evening of Cocktails & Sushi is open to the community and tickets are $18 if purchased prior to Nov. 26 and $25 after that date. To buy tickets, go to 8700 SW 112 St. or call 305-234-5654. Babysitting services are available upon request.
