Dr Ramani and Silvia Saige welcome rabbinical student and Jewish mental health advocate Jonah Sanderson for a controversial discussion on sex, gender and God.
Jonah has made it his mission to combat suicide in the Los Angeles Jewish community. Much of his work focuses on sex, shame and gender roles. Jonah attempts to bridge the gap between traditional Orthodox beliefs and modern life. But many of his viewpoints do not sit right with Dr Ramani and Silvia.
They explore the Talmudic view of sex and homosexuality (still very relevant to Christian and Muslim listeners) and the cultural place of women in the Jewish faith. Then, a deep discussion of the #MeToo Movement, and why its approach is not compatible with rabbis' approach to learning and healing.
Ramani takes Jonah to task on forgiveness and Silvia objects to his concerns about the fallout for men.
