Aired June 19 through September 18, 2013. Watch the complete episode 25 below. (Scroll down for clips.)
For this 25th episode of The Salon, we did something a little different and taped in front of a live audience at the JCC in Manhattan! With a new feel and energy, this special edition of The Salon is not to be missed!
We also brought back two beloved guests from our previous shows — Rabbi Joy Levitt, executive director of the JCC; and Judith Shulevitz, the science editor of “The New Republic” and author of The Sabbath World — and brought on a brand new favorite, Hanna Rosin, author of The End of Men and senior editor at “The Atlantic.”
Clip 1: Is the bar/bat mitzvah model broken?

Topics include: is the bar/bat mitzvah model broken?; what’s a “breadwinner mom”?; is Angelina Jolie the key to breast cancer prevention?; can rape jokes be funny?; and, a first for The Salon, a Q&A with the audience after the show!
