Join Noam Zion, emeritus senior research fellow and educator of the Shalom Hartman Institute in Jerusalem, for a three-part series on sex and marriage in Jewish tradition. Zion’s new book, Sanctified Sex: The Two-Thousand-Year Jewish Debate on Marital Intimacy, draws on rabbinic debates addressing competing aspirations for loving intimacy, passionate sexual union, and sanctity in marriage. Invited into these sanctified and often sexually explicit discussions with our ancestors and contemporaries, we encounter innovative Jewish teachings on marital intimacy, ardent lovemaking techniques, and the art of couple communication vital for matrimonial success.
