It requires us to communicate necessary practical information at the same time as we attempt to communicate those values or sex ethic which is reflective of our overarching Jewish values. Making matters more complicated, most of us have not articulated for ourselves what that sex ethic is, nor how it translates into “real-life”. This session will look at both the big questions and the practical manifestations. If we do our job right, it may make you uncomfortable but you are sure to learn a lot.
