Transition to Marriage

Top Pick Next Event: March 28, 2023 Somerville $108.00
La Baou de Sainte Jeannet II by Marc Chagall

Join Rabbi Getzel and a cohort of other Boston-area couples for a six-class series on love, partnership, and the conscious transition to marriage. Through Jewish wisdom, guided exercises, and frank conversations, we will explore the growth and maintenance of vibrant relationships. Open to couples (all gender and multifaith expressions of partnership strongly welcome) in the year preceding or following a wedding.

Each of the six classes will be on a separate topic:

  • Stories we tell ourselves about love and marriage
  • Healthy conflict
  • Money, finances, and debt
  • Moral/religious/spiritual differences
  • Intimacy and sex
  • Partner roles ancient and modern

Generous financial assistance is available; reach out to Ahava Rosenthal at

Rabbi Getzel Davis (he/him) has worked with over 100 couples, both individually and in groups, to envision, plan, enrich and repair their partnerships at all stages of their lives together. In addition, he serves as a rabbi and chaplain at Harvard University and is a certified trainer of other clergy in Prepare-Enrich premarital counseling. Rabbi Getzel is the founder of Unorthodox Celebrations, which has, since 2016, helped almost 3,000 Jews (and those who love them) find inspiring and relatable officiants for their weddings, bnei mitzvah, and baby namings.
