Shmuley Boteach

Former Oxford Jewish students rabbi and author of numerous books including Kosher Sex, Shmuley Boteach is to be the host of a new US series that looks to help families who are having problems.

To be broadcast from April on TLC, Shalom In The Home is a ten part series of one hour programmes in which Boteach will look to help improve relationships between family members.
The series is made by the US division of UK independent TV company Diverse Production.
"Every family is a system and when one part is broken, the entire unit breaks down," he says.
The series takes a frank look at the way each family operates.
According to some preview publicity, one father is more interested in writing about his son's tantrums on a website rather than spending time with him. While in another episode, a mother and father are constantly abused by their nine-year-old daughter and Boteach looks at ways to develop mutual respect.
