This book by an obser­vant Jew­ish sex ther­a­pist seeks to do for sex what The Bless­ing of a Skinned Knee did for par­ent­ing. Informed by both mod­ern schol­ar­ship and tra­di­tion­al Jew­ish val­ues, Love Worth Mak­ing offers a fresh look at what real­ly mat­ters in lovemaking.

Most sex books focus on tech­nique. Love Worth Mak­ing takes on the more essen­tial sub­ject of sex­u­al feel­ings — how they oper­ate, what rules they fol­low, and how they con­nect to the rest of who you are. The book offers an impas­sioned defense of tra­di­tion­al monogamy, based on the author’s work with over 1,500 indi­vid­u­als and cou­ples, and is illus­trat­ed through­out with com­pelling sto­ries from his practice.

The deep­er inspi­ra­tion for this book comes from Dr. Sny­der’s own expe­ri­ence of mar­riage to a woman who sur­vived a major stroke at the age of 31, just ten weeks after their wed­ding. In the years that fol­lowed, they redis­cov­ered their Jew­ish roots, became obser­vant, raised two chil­dren, and learned the emo­tion­al and spir­i­tu­al prin­ci­ples that became the foun­da­tion of this book.
