Do you wonder about how Judaism views various aspects of sexuality?

Do you have questions or issues that  you would like to address – either in Jewish law or regarding sexuality – but there is no one you feel comfortable asking?

  • Discover how Judaism encourages sexual expression between you and your spouse
  • Find out how to create and enhance emotional and physical intimacy in your marriage
  • Explore how the laws of Taharat Hamishpacha – family purity – can impact intimacy and sexuality, and how to address this in your marriage
  • Understand how lifecycle events such as pregnancy, postpartum, menopause or chronic illness can affect marital intimacy and sex
  • Learn how to deal with difficult situations in marriage such as pornography and infidelity

Losing one’s spouse is one of life’s most difficult and painful experiences. The process of grieving includes feelings of loneliness, abandonment, and isolation. While grieving the loss of a spouse, one also mourns the loss of identity as a member of an intimate partnership and acceptance of a new identity as a widow/er. Well-intentioned friends and family members may urge those who have lost a spouse to “move on,” while others may pass judgment when they begin to date or find a new partner. We are grateful to Marc Tobin and Jodi Wachspress, both of whom lost their partners to cancer, for sharing their experiences in finding new relationships and providing inspiration to those who have lost their spouses to love again.
