These are the stories and narratives not usually discussed in the classroom. It may sometimes be uncomfortable to talk about these texts. This collection makes it clear that in its more than 4,000-year history, Judaism has had an astonishing breadth in its perceptions on every aspect of our sexual lives. Sex in the Texts will enable students to make connections between the texts and their lives and help them learn Jewish perspectives on sexuality, love, and marriage, as well as topics like deception, abortion, adultery, and rape.
