Description

Sensuous, bold and topical – this volume with its varied illustrations presents the entire spectrum of Jewish ideas about sexuality. In doing so it examines widely-held and contradictory stereotypes, according to which Jewish tradition either supports sexuality or restricts it through stringent regulations.

The popular series and dating shows ‘Unorthodox’, ‘Shtisel’ and ‘Jewish Matchmaking’ cater to a surprising desire for a peek into the intimate life of Jews. Whether their protagonists are ultra-Orthodox, secular or somewhere in between: Pop culture simplifies a topic that has been the subject of profound discourse within the Jewish world ever since the commandment to “be fruitful and multiply.” Rabbis and religious scholars, sex therapists, scientists and artists grapple with traditional ideas and contemporary challenges, and explore Jewish positions on sexuality in all its diversity.

Artists include Judy Chicago, Nicole Eisenman, R. B. Kitaj, Roee Rosen, Gil Yefman, et al.
