“At Jewrotica, we believe in the innate holiness of intimate relations but we also believe that hiding it away in a misguided attempt to promote modesty often results instead in the promotion of ignorance and dysfunction. We also love how we can use the vehicle of sexuality to promote greater Torah and Jewish literacy. As such, our initiative has had a broad impact both on Traditional Jews as well as the lesser affiliated and everyone in between.”

“They have the stellar IQs of Mensa members. They’re also compassionate, kind — and smoking hot.They’re rabbis, people whom most of us think of as men with graying side curls, not guys and gals with washboard abs. Jewrotica… thought it was time to honor Jewish leaders not just for their wisdom, but for a quality that the Jerusalem-based site’s co-creator David Abitbol calls ‘badassery.’.”

Jewrotica does not claim to be a halakhic source on sexuality; its permanent staff does not currently include any rabbis, but rather, educators facilitate conversations on sexuality and relationships in a Jewish way. Oppenheimer will be leading Jewrotica’s first-ever camp workshop during Shabbat, June 29, at Camp Young Judaea in Wimberley, Texas. The program at CYJ this weekend will feature components from Bedside Reading to keep the presentation interesting but will be altered slightly to keep it shomer Shabbat.”

One such website is Jewrotica.org. ‘That site is bringing the issues together in a mainstream way that is accessible for people with sensibilities by using a series of ratings on the site and there aren’t pictures that are too suggestive,’ Solomon said.”
