By Leonard S. Kravitz, Selig Salkowitz, Ruth K. Westheimer

Jewish Communal Service Association of North America (JCSA), June 1978

Sexual experience reflects both the desires of the individual and the attitudes of the group to which he or she belongs. This paper sketches the changing nature of the Jewish community and presents some of the sexual attitudes of the Jewish tradition. Some of these attitudes are enhancing and some inhibiting in terms of sexual functioning and the modalities of sex therapy. The therapist should be aware of the varying links of individuals with the Jewish community and the variegated nature of the Jewish tradition. It is hoped that sex education, counseling, and sex therapy may strengthen Jewish family life. In Journal of Jewish Communal Service, v.54 no.4, Summer 1978.
