Tour for students

The student tour offers an age-appropriate discussion of the topics presented in the exhibition. Particular emphasis will be placed on the tension between traditional, religiously informed role behaviors on the one hand and the diversity expressed in our present-day liberal society on the other. Consensus and maturity are also key themes.

Tour for adults

The tour through the exhibition Sex: Jewish Attitudes invites visitors to engage in a dialog about the diverse perceptions of sexuality in Judaism: From the central importance of marriage and procreation through desire, taboos and the questioning of social norms to the eroticism of spirituality, the exhibition shows the wide range of Jewish attitudes toward sexuality. In addition to examining traditional debates about sexuality in Judaism, the event will highlight the relevance of this topic for today.
