Inspirational stories and insights for the Jewish family Throughout history, the Jewish home has been the strength of our people. And today? Today, we face a “shidduch crisis.” Swiftly rising divorce rates. An epidemic of shalom bayis problems. Who can help us build — or rebuild — our homes? For inspiration and advice on how to fix troubled marriages and, even more important, how to build strong marriages from the start, who better to turn to than our gedolim? Based on the private writings, shiurim, and conversations with Rav Yitzchok Zilberstein, a son-in-law of Rav Elyashiv zt”l, and a noted rav and posek in his own right, The Joyful Jewish Home brings us inspirational chizuk and effective guidance from the Torah leaders of our time. Through true stories and inspirational insights, Rav Zilberstein shows us how to maintain our emunah (and our sanity!) through the shidduch process. He guides new couples through that vital first year, and helps all of us to create homes filled with warmth, happiness, and Torah values. The Joyful Jewish Home features a kuntres, a collection of guidance and instructions for navigating the shidduch process from Maran Rav Chaim Kanievsky shlita, who shares thoughts and stories on this topic that he heard from his uncle, Maran HaChazon Ish ztl, and from his father, Maran HaKehillos Yaakov (the Steipler zt’l.) Women and men waiting for their bashert. Newlyweds and people married for decades. We’re all searching for the same thing: A Joyful Jewish Home. This book, and the wisdom of our gedolim, can help us build one.
