“So many people have stopped believing in love, in marriage and in their ability to create a loving marriage.  My passion is to help people trust themselves, their ability to choose the right partner and their ability to create a lasting and profound marriage”.


Chana Levitan, M.S., founder of the Jewish Marriage Alliance is a couple’s therapist, educator, speaker and author with over thirty years of teaching and counseling experience. In addition to training therapists at the Neve Family Institute in Jerusalem, she works with couples in her private practice in Jerusalem and lectures frequently on the topics of dating, relationships and marriage.

Chana’s best-selling book I Only Want to Get Married Once is a clear and practical guide to choosing the right marriage partner. Translated into a number of foreign languages, including Chinese, this book is making a huge, positive impact in this world.

Chana has lectured extensively across the globe on five different continents and has counseled thousands of men and women on dating and marriage. She is a frequent guest on television and radio talk shows, including WCBS 880 and WLS 890.  Chana’s second book, “That’s Why I Married You”—is a practical guide for couples to not only learn to live with their personality differences but to actually love with their differences.

Chana is a certified Imago Relationship Therapist and has a Master’s Degree in Clinical Sociology, with an emphasis on Couple’s Counseling. She believes that a good marriage has many lives; it really is a dynamic, evolving process.  This is a wonderful truth that couples with ‘staying power’ reveal to themselves and to others; Chana is dedicated to getting this message across to as many people as possible.  Her goal is to teach people how to choose the right partner before (sealing the deal), and then ‘be’ the right partner (after the deal is sealed).

Chana lives in Jerusalem with her husband and children and is presently working on her third book, which explores the secrets to longevity and lasting joy in a marriage.
