Summer is just around the corner, and together with those first trips to the pool and the official start of barbecue season comes the next biannual Frum Divorce weekend, taking place Friday, June 30 through Sunday, July 2.
Titled “Soulmates, Take Two,” the shabbaton is Frum Divorce’s eighth weekend at Westchester’s stunning Renaissance Hotel, and organizers are expecting the shabbaton to be a spectacular success. Over the years, Frum Divorce’s sold-out weekend retreats have become highly anticipated events, with people traveling from all over the country—and internationally—to share a relaxing weekend at a luxurious venue, enjoying great programming, fabulous food, and the company of others who understand the challenges they face on a daily basis.
Frum Divorce’s events are designed first and foremost to foster camaraderie and support for those who are no longer married, but they have also been the vehicle for several successful shidduchim. Frum Divorce just celebrated the marriage of its 15th couple, who met at the 2017 winter retreat held this past February.
Soulmates, Take Two will feature highly popular speakers including Rabbi Moshe Tuvia Lieff, Rabbi Y.Y. Rubinstein, Dr. David Lieberman, and Dr. Faye Zakheim, as well as the mega-talented Lipa Schmeltzer, who will be joining Frum Divorce for the entire Shabbos. Rounding out the program are comedian Avi Lieberman, ventriloquist John Pizzi, facilitator Chaim Kiss, and popular shadchanim Baila Sebrow and Devorah Rosner. The weekend chair will be Naomi Klass Mauer, publisher at the Jewish Press and senior board member of Frum Divorce.
As always, participants will enjoy five-star accommodations, gourmet catering, and Saturday-night entertainment, while having the opportunity to take part in personalized matchmaking programs and speed meetings. While some participants bring their children and others come solo, all walk away feeling refreshed and rejuvenated with the knowledge that they are not alone as they continue the next chapter in their lives.
In addition to its highly popular biannual shabbatons, Frum Divorce also offers year-round programming including monthly lectures and children’s events. Two other unique projects include a Take My Kids to Shul program, which helps divorced single mothers and fathers make sure their children are properly supervised in shul, and Pray it Forward, a once-a-week tefillah session held in New York at the grave of a highly esteemed rav or at the Kotel, offering members hope and inspiration for a joy-filled future.
