"Getting Comfortable with the Uncomfortable:"  In his witty and powerful talk, Harlan Cohen shares his own experience of dealing with difficult moments in college and discusses raising resilient children and why we must all get comfortable with the uncomfortable in life. Cohen is the author of six books. He is based in Chicago, Illinois.



High school students only: Enjoy dinner and an intimate program with Harlan Cohen before The Main Event at 5:00 p.m. at Congregation Keneseth Israel. No charge, but reservations required due to limited space. Made possible by a grant from KI's Ray and Bonnie Singer Education Fund. Contact 610-821-5500 or or REGISTER NOW.


Cohen's book, "The Naked Roommate: And 107 Other Issues" is used as a textbook in over 100 college classrooms. The book has struck a nerve because it gives students permission to be imperfect — and that makes everyone perfect. He is also the author of the books, "The Naked Roommate: For Parents Only," "The Naked Roommate’s First Year Survival Workbook", "Dad’s Expecting Too: An Expectant Parents Guide" and "Getting Naked: Five Steps to Finding the Love of Your Life (While Fully Clothed and Totally Sober)."
