Shalom in the Home was an American reality television series hosted by Rabbi Shmuley Boteach that debuted on TLC on April 10, 2006. A second and last season of the series began on Sunday, March 4, 2007.
The weekly one-hour prime-time program attempted to help families overcome difficult problems. Rabbi Shmuley Boteach provided advice about relationships, marriage and parenting. In each episode he works with one family for ten days to help them come to terms with their problems and find the skills they need to improve.
After driving up to each house in an Airstream trailer equipped with television monitors, cameras were installed, capturing footage of the family's dynamics. Rabbi Boteach brought the parents into the trailer, which is "neutral territory", showed them the footage, and gently confronted them about the family's dysfunction in the hopes of shocking them into change. Other techniques he used included: having family members wear earpieces so that Rabbi Boteach could encourage positive, healthy interactions, and discourage negative, dysfunctional behaviors; and taking the family on an outdoors outing or activity.
Rabbi Shmuley appeared with families from the series on The Oprah Winfrey Show to discuss common family problems and how to solve them.
