Sex: Jewish Positions

Public tour (in Hebrew) (סיור מודרך בתערוכה "סקס. עמדות יהודיות")

The tour through the exhibition Sex: Jewish Position 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 traditional debates about sexuality in Judaism, the event will also highlight the relevance of this topic for today.

סיור מודרך בתערוכה "סקס. עמדות יהודיות"

בכל יום ראשון אנו מזמינים אתכם לדיאלוג על ההבנות המגוונות של המיניות ביהדות: מהחשיבות המרכזית של נישואין והולדה דרך תשוקה, טאבו והטלת ספק בנורמות חברתיות ועד לארוטיות של רוחניות. ויכוחים מסורתיים עומדים בניגוד לשיח מודרני. הסיורים מתקיימים בעברית ביום ראשון השלישי בכל חודש.
