Forbidden Union: Sexual Boundaries in Leviticus and in Our Lives

GCASL 4th Floor Chaplains’ Office Suite Lounge

Everyone’s heard of the infamous “homosexuality verses” in Leviticus. But Jewish tradition displays a strikingly broad range of views on sexuality. We will take a look at the list of forbidden sexual unions in this week’s Torah portion and compare them to the 2001 document on Reform Sexual Ethics. Let’s talk about sex… and boundaries. Bring your appetite; bring your voice. Part of our weekly Lunch Forward: A Progressive Discussion of Jewish Life.

Facilitated by Bronfman Center Rabbinic Intern Nikki DeBlosi (deblosi@nyu.edu).
