Sexuality and Homosexuality and Jewish Law

Posted by Greg Hambrick on Wed, Apr 2, 2008 at 1:03 PM

Three local rabbis discuss the issue:

There has been a dramatic change in norms governing sexual behavior in America. As a result, issues about sexuality and homosexuality have been a recurring theme, and often a divisive one, for every religious denomination in America, including the various branches of Judaism. This semester the rabbis will discuss what they think Jewish law has to say about sexuality, both within and outside marriage, and how it should inform our thinking about homosexuality in particular. In so doing, they will reflect on the nature and scope of Jewish law.

The event is at 7:30 p.m. Thursday at the Stern Student Center. It's free and open to the public.

Hat tip to AFFA for the heads up.
