TABOO TALK | Whether for medical, mechanical, or social reasons, the path to parenthood is rarely simple and raises many complex religious, existential, and psychological issues. But what can we learn about family, parenting, identity, feminism, and our culture generally when we break some of the taboos that stop us talking about reproductive challenges? Our panelists will reflect on their own personal journeys through infertility, IVF, and stillbirth as they explore how reproductive issues should be discussed in contemporary Jewish communities and beyond.

These ‘taboo talks’ aim to create a space for brave, difficult conversations about complicated human experiences—sex, baby-making, illness, ageing—that may feature in our lives. Come with an open mind and leave with a new perspective.
