Shana Rishona Gift

The Most Important Wedding Gift. Ever.


The Most Important Wedding Gift. Ever.

The first year of marriage is an eagerly anticipated chapter in the heart and mind of most young adults. As they begin design on the blank canvas of their married lives, share with your newlyweds the Shana Rishona Gift Package. Through this package your newly married couple will be gifted three exclusive, private sessions with a trained expert in personality and human dynamics. This will help enable the Chosson and Kallah to explore, in a structured way, their unique gifts and strengths and how they can harness these traits towards building their unique home in Klal Yisroel. Our experts will also devote time around the couples communication styles as well as help design an effective approach to relating to finances. The Shana Rishona Gift Package is a great way to help lay the most solid foundations for your newly married couple.

You probably have some questions

Where Did This Idea Come From?
Shana Rishona Gift was born from the recognition that the strongest teams choose proactive communication and planning to develop. Our staff of experts are trained to educate and empower young couples to proactively create a solid marital foundation in the most vital, early stages of their marriage - the Shana Rishona.
Why Get This Gift?
Because every team can benefit from a deliberate, proactive focus to help identify and blend their individual key strengths with an expert in understanding personalities and human dynamics.
Who Is Running This Program?
Rabbi Dovid Fredman, LMFT, M.A., M.Eds has a solid understanding of the different personality types and their strengths. He is also trained how to help harness these strengths while minimizing the impact of their differences. Rabbi Fredman and his team are committed to ensuring solid marital foundations through understanding, discussion and action-oriented plans throughout the three sessions.
What About Privacy?
Once this package is purchased, only the couple will be involved in the process. This means, if someone calls us to ask if the gift was used, SRG team members will let the caller know that they do not share any information about the usage of the package.
Who Can Purchase This Package?
Whether you are a parent, grandparent, uncle, aunt or simply a caring friend, you can purchase the Shana Rishona Gift Package for the chosson and kallah. Both the chosson and kallah's parents can also purchase this gift together.
How Does This Whole Process Work?
5 Easy Steps:
1) You purchase the package for the chosson and kallah.
   a) Feel free to let the couple know this gift has been purchased for them. Either way, we will be sending a gift certificate explaining the Shana Rishona Gift Package to the couple.
2) We send a gift certificate to the chosson and kallah which has a one year shelf life from the chasunah.
3) We reach out to congratulate the new couple three months after the chasunah and discuss the benefits of the Shana Rishona Gift Package.
4) The couple chooses the professional they would ideally like to work with.
5) One of our team members sets up an initial appointment with the chosson and kallah.
What Happens If They Want More Sessions?
If the couple decides they want more than the three sessions, they can directly work out the details with their personal SRG team member.
Are There Other Package Options?
At this time, the Shana Rishona Gift Package includes what is being offered on our website. We are working on more options for the future.


"As we invest in a newly married couple and their furniture, apartment, car, housewares and parnasa; let’s make sure we invest in the health of their relationship."
