Presented by the UVA Jewish Studies' Deborah Gabry Memorial Lecture

"Various Positions: Sex, Love and Deviant Behavior in the Talmud"

Rabbi Benay Lappe

 

According to the ancient Rabbis, Talmudic Kama Sutra-style, which sexual positions does God recommend and which does God forbid? What aspects of sexual relationships really matter? Rabbi Lappe will consider a Talmudic passage that deals with issues of sex, intimacy, relationships, and love.  Her methodology follows a traditional style of learning, but takes a more open and even radical approach to the text.
