A guide to Jewish practice: Family and sexual ethics

Paperback
Part of the multi-volume Guide to Jewish Practice series that takes a fresh look at all of Jewish ethics and practice, this volume looks at relationships and obligations between parents and children, between spouses, and among extended family members, and examines sexual activity of all kinds. It considers such topics as bisexuality, transgendered identity, and the evolution of the functions of sexuality. In considering the historical diversity of Jewish family structures and sexual practices, the book opens the possibility of broad ethical diversity within what is considered Jewishly legitimate while taking a strong stand against violence, exploitation of power imbalances, and harm to children.
