Sexuality & Intimacy in Judaism
In line with our dedication to the world of our values and in adherence to Jewish law and tradition, every activity of VE-AHAVTEM® is supported by a certified Rabbi from the outset. For couples who express the need, Rabbi Rafi Ostroff, the author of the book "To Know How to Love," personally accompanies the founders of VE-AHAVTEM® in their endeavors. Additionally, he extends assistance to visitors on the website. This page provides access to study sources, halachic discussions by diverse Rabbis, and the opportunity to anonymously ask the accompanying Rabbi personal questions.
We hope that these discussions will serve as a foundation for a meaningful study on marriage. However, we would like to emphasize that reading alone cannot replace a comprehensive study on the subject. It is intended to raise awareness and provide only fundamental tools for building your relationship. We always recommend consulting a Rabbi of your choice for inquiries regarding Halachic matters, and for questions about your personal married life, seek advice from a professional in the field.
