Should intimacy and sex be taught in religious high schools? The members of today’s panel believe that it’s not only a good idea, but extremely important and imperative. Many of us have discovered that ignorance when it comes to sex and sexuality can have far reaching consequences. Particularly in light of the recent reports of a rape at Yeshiva University – where the perpetrator allegedly excused his crime by saying, “But it’s fun” – we see that a Jewish sexual ethic is not something that our children and students just acquire by osmosis. If we don’t teach it, we can only blame ourselves when things go wrong.
Scott was honored to host Rabbi Moshe Simkovich, Yoetzet Halacha Tova Warburg Sinensky, and Mrs. Olivia Friedman on today’s episode.
