Chaya Major, MMC

Chaya Major brings her 25 years of experience as a social worker, an individual and family therapist, a dating mentor, kallah teacher, and marriage mentor to Core as she becomes a Core Mentor.

Her favorite part of being a mentor is knowing that she has contributed to nurturing the legacy of the Jewish home which will continue from generation to generation. Throughout her work with others, Chaya stimulates curiosity, builds confidence, and encourages growth to help empower her clients to discover new approaches to their experiences and to see other aspects of their lives. Chaya enjoys that moment when her mentees experience a transformation that allows them to move forward and grow.

Using her experience parenting her own triplets, twins, and a singleton (all girls!), she guides others in their parenting journey. Chaya also works as a mashgiach for the local Kashrut agency, is a shatnez tester, works for the chevrah Kadisha, learns with individual women, and volunteers for several community organizations.

When not busy with her family, work, or volunteering, Chaya enjoys palates, knitting, sewing and many types of crafts. She enjoys reading and recently completed reading the National Jewish Book Award Winners in Fiction from 1949 to present.
