  • Beliefs about homosexuality
    • In Torah, sex between men described as offence worthy of death: "Do not  lie with a man as one lies with a woman"
    • No explicit reference to lesbianism
      • "You must not do as they do in Egypt"
        • WEAK - creating rules 4 a lot of lesbian women over 1 vague sentence
      • Maybe because  logically couldn't happen in those times as they needed a man for money + men wrote Bible/ didn't recognise it
    • "Be fruitful and multiply" - Can't do this in homosexual relationship
    • ORTHADOX Jews believe  that you can be gay but can not practise it (orientation is not wrong)
    • LIBERAL jews say homosexuality is ok/ may even allow it in synagogue
    • Story  of Sodom shows homosexuality is wrong as Lot would rather let mob rape his virgin daughters than the angels
  • LIBERAL jews say homosexuality is ok/ may even allow it in synagogue
  • Can go forward and multiply as can adopt
    • WEAK as not populating jewish race
