"Thanks so much again for the marriage coaching course.  It was so informative and I learned so much!


I teach in a Bais Yaakov high school and in keeping ties with the alumni, we often offer them different courses, shiurim, and workshops throughout the year. I was thinking of putting together a dating workshop for them based on your classes".

The amount of material, the clear instructions, the fantastic books you recommended, created a springboard that will enable me to take what I learned and apply it in my practice. Thanks for providing our community with desperately needed resources for marriage and dating and relationship difficulties."

"I just wanted to tell you that I'm listening to the recording of Class 6 and I'm literally breathless and have no words to comment on how powerful and full of real Torah Hashkofah that class was.


This is one class that I wish every BMG student (and really any frum person) would hear. The short episodes and real-life lessons showing the power of Emunah!!! Wow!!! That lesson is worth millions!!!"
