TABOO TALK | Judaism honours our elders, but current society exalts youth. We all hope we’ll grow old someday, yet we don’t want to imagine ourselves ageing. How do we provide for our seniors in a Jewish context? And how can we make aged care, one of the fastest growing industries, more engaging for younger people? Join us to break taboos around ageing and to explore ways to ‘bring sexy back’ to growing older.

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.
