PODCAST + Q&A | Many of us have grown up with the idea that in, contrast to many other religions, Judaism is sex positive. And this is true. And it is also not true. To suggest that Judaism has one approach to sex is to minimise its richness and complexity. So, join Rabbi Dov Linzer and Dr. Bat Sheva Marcus as they uncover, explore and navigate the intricacy of what Judaism really has to say about sex. They will use some fun texts, your questions, and their usual irreverent banter to open up a long overdue conversation. And they will be taking questions from the audience! Join us for this live recording of the extremely popular The Joy of Text Podcast that has been at the forefront of opening up discussions on Judaism and sexuality.
