We in the Orthodox community are justifiably proud of our emphasis on community. Like all good things, however, this, too, has a dark side: the possibility of people feeling excluded from what often presents itself, or at least sometimes appears, as a community that is insulated from many problems. In this episode of the Orthodox Conundrum, Scott Kahn talks to Shira Lankin Sheps, who is giving voice to women whose problems are often swept under the rug. Through The Layers Project, Shira is allowing issues that some people treat as taboo and a source of shame – such as special needs parenting, infertility, infant loss, dating struggles, and more – to be voiced, normalized, and validated.
