Love, Sex, and Relationships in Jewish Tradition

Organization: Hadar Institute

We turn to our tradition for answers to the greatest questions of our times: how to handle the messy business of love, sex and relationships.

In this course, we’ll dive into texts across the Jewish canon, from Torah to Mishnah, Talmud to the Legal Codes, exploring questions of “What does it mean to love someone,” “What does a holy, healthy sex life look like,” and “Is there such thing as permitted, sacred sex outside of marriage?”

No topics are off limits for the rabbis! We turn to our Jewish texts as a jumping off point for our own exploration of what it means to be in a relationship.
