THE F WORDS: Post Kol Nidrei Program

Lab/Shul is pleased to announce our exciting Post Kol Nidrei program:

Fornication, Fidelity, Forgiveness:
An interactive conversation about sexual healing for the night of atonement.

With Esther Perel, author of ‘Mating in Captivity’, Amichai Lau-Lavie, and you.

Yom Kippur is the one night a year on which sex is forbidden. So let’s talk about it.

Friday, September 13th 2013, 9-10:30PM
Tribeca Performing Arts Center

This program is FREE and follows Lab/Shul’s ticketed Kol Nidrei Worship Event.

Esther Perel is Author of ‘Mating in Captivity’, Ted Speaker and the recipient of the Vicky Woodhul Sexual Freedom Award



Individual & collective ignorance, ambivalence, self-destructiveness, etc., will always make sex a highly controversial phenomenon; but the spirit of acceptance and recognition evinced by Talmudists and others, with sagacious wit and remedial understanding, has been a sound basis for modern liberality and great expectation that one day all of civilized and enlightened humanity will not feel so personally threatened as to question or condemn what two or more people wish to do in their own privacy.
(Erotica Judaica, Allen Edwards)
