The Joy of Text

Make sure you catch the latest episode here! IUDs, condoms, the pill, oh my! We break down the pros and cons of these and other common birth control methods and the halachic considerations that render some forms of contraception more acceptable than others. Then we hear from internationally renowned educator Rivkah Slonim, the Chabbad rebbetzin at SUNY Binghamton, about her three decades of teaching Jewish college students about sex and marriage. Plus, a listener responds to our episode on pornography.

The Joy of Text is a monthly podcast about Judaism, sexuality, and the intersection of the two. Co-hosted by Rabbi Dov Linzer and Dr. Bat Sheva Marcus and moderated and produced by Rebecca Honig Friedman, this podcast features in-depth conversations by rabbinic and medical experts about subjects that you’ll almost never hear discussed anywhere else, even online. Each episode also includes answers to questions from listeners like you (see the link below to submit your own question).

The Joy of Text is supported by JOFA, the Jewish Orthodox Feminist Alliance, and Yeshivat Chovevei Torah Rabbinical School.
