Sex and Judaism (You’re welcome!): Laura Berman’s Prescription for Passion
Whether you are trying to keep your relationship healthy, meet new people, or hang out, navigating love and intimacy in this pandemic is no picnic. While we have little sense how it will shape longer term outcomes, such as divorce, marriage and birth rate, we do know there are steps we can take today to help us build new muscles and skills of intimacy which we so desperately need.
As part of the series Sex and Judaism (You’re welcome!), Dr. Laura Berman--the world’s leading expert in sex, love and relationships and friend of Oprah--gives us the passion prescription to heighten our relationships.
We encourage everyone to watch the presentation live. It will not be available to view as we are currently working behind the scenes to improve the user experience.
