Sex and Judaism- A Webinar Series with Rabbi Nikki

Shaare Emeth 20s and 30s & MaTovu invite you to join us for:
Sex and Judaism: A Webinar Series with Rabbi Nikki
May 10th, 24th, 31st                 7-8:30 p.m. CT

May 10th - Adam and Eve Started It!
How much of our sexual legacy comes from the story of the first two humans of the Torah/Bible? Together, we'll confront Genesis and its role in shaping our own gender roles and expectations.

May 24 - The Torah of Sex
It turns out, Judaism has lots to say about sex: how we learn about it, how we do it, and its place in human life. Come learn a few "best of" texts from Talmud, mixed with some sources from the field of queer theory.

May 31 - Relationship Goals and Problematic Faves
Jews love to mention our ancestors, but do we really examine what their stories and lessons tell us about relationships today? We'll explore a few ideas about "good" and "bad" relationships in our attempt to determine what contemporary sexually active folks (including feminist, queer, and polyamorous folks) might take away from our ancient ancestors.
