“Sexy Scriptures:” How the Bible Deals with Sex and Mixed Dancing

Temple Beth Sholom Adult Education The Third Wednesday Lunch & Learn Series

Class taught by Rabbi Shelton Donnell


If our Hebrew Bible deals with real people in a real world, then it stands to reason that our familiar biblical personalities led real lives. Unlike the stories that you learned in Religious School, our scriptures contain many tales that are rated “R” — definitely not for children! In this four-session series we will take a look (sometimes blushing, sometimes laughing) at some of the more “interesting” texts from our biblical tradition. So, bring out your lunch, turn on the computer and enjoy some fun learning!
