More than two decades ago, “Kosher Sex: A Recipe for Passion and Intimacy” hit bookstands, sparking both controversy and simultaneously a movement. In his famed (or infamous, depending on who you ask) book, Rabbi Shmuley Boteach offers his own unique takes on relationships, sex and marriage in teachings derived from Judaism and the Torah.

As of now, Boteach shares the storefront with her friend, Christina Dickens, whose sustainable vintage denim label, Foreign Denim, offers a chic and inviting contrast for passersby.
