“If you will it, it is no dream,” might have been Theodor Herzl’s catchphrase for the founding of the State of Israel but it is a wholly American sentiment: “Energy and persistence conquer all things,” Benjamin Franklin said.

This month’s episode of “The Salon” feels especially momentous because, in addition to it being our pre-Passover episode it was also our very pregnant co-host’s last show before her due date, and in fact as I am writing this she is in labor and on her way to the hospital to give birth! (If she gives birth by the time I get to the end I will let you know.)
We were excited to have Forward columnist and the host of the Discovery Life series “World’s Worst Mom,” Lenore Skenazy, on the show this month, along with the National Council of Jewish Women-New York section’s executive director, Andrea Salwen Kopel, and Yeshivat Maharat’s director of pastoral counseling, Dr. Esther Altmann.
As the executive producer of The Salon, it is my privilege each month to bring together fascinating, accomplished, and brilliant Jewish women — including our host, the editor-in-chief of The Forward, Jane Eisner, and our co-host, Rachel Sklar, founder of TheLi.st and Change the Ratio — to share their insights and observations about the issues of the day. It’s not often, however, that the discussion turns to erotic spanking, orgasms and cervical fluid. In fact, it’s never gone to any of those places before this month’s episode.
