כׇּל הַנֶּהֱנֶה מִסְּעוּדַת חָתָן כְּאִילּוּ בָּנָה אַחַת מֵחוּרְבוֹת יְרוּשָׁלַיִם, שֶׁנֶּאֱמַר כִּי אָשִׁיב אֶת שְׁבוּת הָאָרֶץ כְּבָרִאשׁוֹנָה אָמַר ה׳
“One who rejoices in the wedding ceremony of a bride and groom, it is as if s/he rebuilds one of the ruins of Jerusalem.” (Brachos 6b)
Here we are again. And more than ever, our world is aching.

When we tune in, we can feel the pain. Ours, our loved ones, our communities, our world. We can “hear” the just audible cries of the Shechina itself. What can we do to alleviate it?

As women, we are healers. With vision, love and Torah guidance, we can bring about a healed world.

Our sages predicted – centuries ago! – that righteous women will have a role to play at the end of days. This means that, somehow, we have the keys to redemption. What is the secret of our holy feminine power that can heal the world and wipe away the tears?

Answering this question is the mission of the Rise! Into your Crown global events. We ease the birth pangs by connecting to something deeper, and by bringing the qualities of redemption into our homes. This is how we precipitate the return of the Shechina into Her Home.

Join us for the Rise! Into your Crown Global 9 days Marriage conference and get inspired – educated – and ready to infuse your marriage with the qualities of redemption.

All summit presentations (except when specifically noted) are open to married women as well as single women who wish to deepen their understanding of marriage.

You can purchase the summit for life-long access to all recordings and downloading rights HERE.

Gila Levitt

I am Gila Levitt, a Torah Marriage and Intimacy Specialist. For the past 20 years, I have been teaching kallas, training Kalla teachers under the Center for Taharat Hamishpacha in Israel while guiding thousands of women to more fulfilling marriages.

Throughout the years, I witnessed how a lack of basic knowledge about intimacy seriously affected the emotional and spiritual bond between the couple.

Marriages were a source of stress and tension instead of connection. They looked at intimacy as a duty to their husbands instead of a gift towards themselves.

Both husband and wife were drifting apart, kept together mostly by mutual obligations. Heart of Marriage: Soul Satisfying Oneness -classes, teleconferences and courses devoted to REVITALIZING INTIMACY in the Torah home, is my humble response to the pain, loneliness and frustration I observed in so many women’s lives.

It is my mission to provide you with the most up to date information together with a fierce loyalty to Torah sources on the importance, beauty and joy of Mitzvas Onah.
