From a sex-positive Biblical period, through a Christian and Greek-influenced medieval ambivalence about sex, to a modern engagement in identity politics, Jews and Judaism have had a lot to say about sex and gender. This seminar is designed to trace the history of Jewish sexual attitudes and behaviours across multiple periods and social realities. Join Dr. Steven Lapidus as we explore how Jewish approaches to sex and gender have evolved over the centuries. This 7 session course, presented by the Museum of Jewish Montreal with The Jewish Learning Lab and The Segal Centre for Performing Arts, includes: - 6 seminars (see syllabus in discussion below!) - Entrance for each participant to an exclusive behind-the-scenes talk and closed performance of INDECENT at the Segal Centre.
