Sex – Jewish Positions in the JMB Library

Public guided tour

This time, to complement the current exhibition Sex: Jewish Positions, the focus will be on publications about sex – biblical texts, writings on sexology and psychoanalysis, feminist views and more.

Monika Sommerer, head of the JMB Library, regularly gives tours of the library’s history and extensive collection. She presents special works on various subjects – from first editions of writings by important Jewish authors and volumes on art to prayer, address, cookery and children’s books.
