Episode 104: Parshat Tazria-Metzora: Making Sense of Sexual Prohibitions

Dr. Yosefa (Fogel) Wruble with Shayna Goldberg

Back to Podcasts

Listen On


In this sensitive conversation with Shayna Goldberg, we discuss bodily ritual impurities alongside the complementary list of prohibited sexual prohibitions to try and better understand the Torah’s perspective on sexuality and its potential perversion.

This week’s episode has been dedicated in memory of Miriam Yehudit bat Basha.

Our series on Vayikra is titled ‘Kedusha is in the Details’ and explores the way these laws try to elevate each of our most basic human functions: food intake, bodily functions, relationships, spaces of worship, and our use of time.
