TABOO TALK | At some point, most of us will be confronted with health challenges that will dramatically impact the way we live. But what happens when that time comes early? Our panelists will talk about how they have wrestled with halachic, social, and existential questions due to their health challenges and how they have built lives of meaning and interest in spite—or even because of—their ‘new normal’.

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.
