Kosher Lust: Why Love is NOT the Answer
Jan 17, 7-10 pm
Norman Rothstein Theatre
950 W. 41st, Vancouver
From his most recent provocative book, Rabbi Shmuley Boteach explains why the prioritizing of love and companionship in marriage is all wrong. It is not love, Rabbi Shmuley shows, but lust that is the glue of a marriage. In this Evening With Rabbi Shmuley, have a nosh, schmooze with the author, and learn how to restore lust to its rightful place as the central pillar of marriage. Rabbi Shmuley Boteach, “America’s Rabbi,” has been called “the most famous Rabbi in America” by The Washington Post and Newsweek, and “the best-known Orthodox Jew in the world,” by theNew York Observor. An acclaimed author, TV host and public speaker, The Jerusalem Post has listed him as one of the world’s 50 most influential Jews in the world—one of today’s leading values and spirituality exponents and relationship experts. His 30 books, including Kosher Sex, The Michael Jackson Tapes, Parenting with Fire and Ten Conversations You Need to Have with Your Children,have been international bestsellers and translated into 20 languages.
