Marsha B. Cohen's Jewish Personal Training Website
Welcome to my website, where I've gathered some useful and interesting links to a variety of my favorite resources for Jewish Personal Training of all sorts: learning Torah, history, ahavat Yisrael, Jewish observance, traditions and customs from around the world, skills such as layning and baking challah, song and celebration.
You'll also find links to some of my other web pages, including the courses I teach for the Florence Melton Adult Mini-School, the Havurah of South Florida Wednesday afternoon study group, and the National Havurah Institute. If you'd like additional information about any of these programs, please let me know.
Kol tuv (all good things),
