We kick off this month's theme, "The Intersection of Sexuality & Spirituality" by talking with the fantastic guest, Ayo Oppenheimer about her project and website, Jewrotica.org. This is an enlightened conversion and filled with so much information about what sexuality means to her and the Jewish beliefe. Jewrotica is a website that explores the intersection between sexuality, relationships, gender and Judaism at large.
Ayo Oppenheimer is the founder and editor of Jewrotica.org A serial project creator and modern-day wandering Jew, Ayo downsized to 25 feet of simplicity and spent three years full-time RVing around North America, energizing Jewish communities, volunteering with local nonprofits, piloting new projects and connecting with the underground circus community. Prior to launching Jewrotica, Ayo worked in strategy and operations for Deloitte Consulting, created and released a documentary film, lectured at 300+ universities and institutions as a subject-matter expert on religion and state issues in Israel, and directed an international summer camp. Ayo most recently trained in silks and trapeze, sang with a black gospel choir in Austin, TX, and danced with several performing arts companies. Just this past month, Ayo relocated to Jerusalem where she will work on Jewrotica, teach acrobatic yoga and partner with the local shelter systems to fight domestic violence in the Orthodox community.
