Overview

In The Jewish Tradition, Sexuality, and Procreation, Lewis Solomon presents the guidance offered by the Jewish tradition regarding questions of sexual and reproductive ethics. Solomon's approach is unique in presenting a wide spectrum of viewpoints from various strands of contemporary Judaism- traditional (Orthodox) and more modern and flexible (Conservative, Reform, and Reconstructionist). In providing the guidance offered by the Jewish tradition, Solomon draws upon modern commentators and authorities, who while looking to ancient text sources, have witnessed the contemporary societal transformation over the past three or four decades. Solomon also presents a new, nonlegalistic approach, drawing on the perspective of Spiritual Judaism.
