Dinner Discussions – How to Build a Jewish Sexual Ethic

Join Jewish Graduate Student Network and Moishe House Philadelphiafor a wonderful evening of learning and kosher dinner with Rabbanit Nechama Goldman Barash from Pardes Institute of Jewish Studies!

We’ll be diving into the topic titled Sexuality and Sanctity: How to Build a Jewish Sexual Ethic.

Judaism has always had a progressive attitude towards sexuality from Biblical times through rabbinic and later halachic (legal) codes of law. As a religion, it understands the centrality of sexual desire to the human existence and rather than deflect or suppress such desire, it has embraced opportunities to sanctify the sexual experience. We will use rabbinic texts to examine the discourse of contemporary sexual experience and see whether Jewish values and attitudes can help us reframe some of the challenges, behaviors and conflicts we face today.

*Please RSVP via the Eventbrite link (the event is free) by Monday October 22nd so we can order enough kosher food.*
