Gedolei Yisroel and Marriage counseling

Gedolei Yisroel, shlita are alerting the tzibur to avoid going to any kind of counseling without a written endorsment of that particular therapist, counselor or rabbi who acts as counselor. The endorsment should be from a "Renowned Talmid chacham with experience".

Considerable harm has been caused by the non- Endorsed counselor of any kind. The damaging effects it has had on potential shidduchim or on Chinuch Habanim are countless not to mention how these "so called" counselors have contributed to the destruction of shalom bayis.

Some counselors have freely advised potential Talmedei Chachamim to abandon the Beis Medrash for a carrer.

Please let us spare ourselves and others from a life of agony.

The title Rabbi does not serve as an indication of the persons abilities and compotence as a counselor. The Novice is a very dangerous person to seek for help despite any title.


Articles from a Rabbi or a teacher regarding shalom bayis or chinuch.
Is not a substitute for an ENDORSMENT!

R' Shmuel Gluck critisizes Yeshivos

In a little pamphlet written by R' Gluck he attacks publicly the yeshiva system. He says "in the yeshiva system they were taught to be gedolim before they reach the age of 20"

This attack on the sacred world of yeshiva should be publicly condemned and r' gluck should be reprimanded.

As Chazal say "Afra le'pumay"

His declaration that his Areivim project is affiliated with Kol Yaakov is UNTRUE as no one with authority at Kol Yaakov Has given blessing to that idea.

His "absolutes" about shalom bayis are childish and deceptive. One who is suffering from Sholom bayis problems needs to seek help from a True Gadol or someone proffesional. A Pamphlet writing Novice is a dangerous person to ask for guidance regarding Shalom Bayis.
