I’m teaching a class at the lovely retreat center Elat Chayyim this summer, from July 27-August 2. It’s on Jewish sex! What could be more fun than that?
Here’s the official copy:
Judaism’s sacred texts and great thinkers offer many inspirations, challenges and provocative questions about how we conduct our most intimate relationships.
How should a couple interact in the bedroom? How does sexuality impact our relationships with God and ourselves? Have feminism, queerness and new questions about gender identity impacted our Jewish understandings? Our tradition can help guide us in ways that resonate even today.
Weâ€™ll look at texts and use experiential-based learning to look within, asking ourselves what it means to have a Jewish sexual ethic.
Come join the fun–go here for more information, to register, etc etc.
And if you can’t make the class (or even if you can), you can still get your fill with The Passionate Torah: Sex and Judaism, which will be out in June….
