It took Micki Lavin-Pell many years, two degrees and a good job to realize that the nutrition field was not what she wanted from life.It was only once she and her husband moved to Melbourne Australia that Micki realized what her niche was.

She became a family therapist, specializing in couples, and also working with singles. With time, Micki began to realize that older singles and couples with relationship issues had a lot in common. So she developed programs to help couples build healthy relationships from the start.

Now living in Israel, Micki is the program director of Beineinu, a branch of the International Young Israel Movement. Her goal is to build fun activities, pressure free, to help singles get to know one another in a relaxed atmosphere.

One of the main goals of the Beineinu programs is to have a good time, even if you didn't meet your "beshert," you may have met someone for another single friend. Micki also runs workshops called "Dating with a Difference," geared towards helping singles unlock their inner blocks to help them find who they are looking for.

And she has had phenomenal success in her practice at couples therapy as well. Know someone who is single? Tell them about the Dream Shabbat in Beit El June 29-30th.
