You have to live here in a holy fashion as well. Not just as Jew in Israel. A Jew, wherever he or she lives, is obligated to live his or her sexual life in a holy fashion. That’s one of the main things that distinguishes the Jewish People from the nations of the world.
When Adam and Eve were cast out of the Garden of Eden and subsequent generations angered G-d with ever-increasing sexual transgression, G-d chose Avraham to father a holy nation that would lead the world out of its immoral darkness to the light of holiness and morality. In promising the Jewish People the Holy Land, G-d entered into a Covenant with Avraham for all time, the Covenant of Brit Milah, whereby Avraham and his descendants were to circumcise their offspring and guard the holiness of their sexual lives, as the Torah says: “And G-d said to Avraham: therefore you shall safeguard My Brit, you and your seed after you in their generations” (Bereshit, 17:8-10).
While the nations of the world wallow in the smut of sexual immorality, the Torah calls upon the Jewish People to set a higher standard. The pursuit of selfish animal pleasures championed by the cultures of the world are all forbidden by the Torah, such base and carnal actions as masturbation, pre-marital sex, adultery, homosexuality, viewing pornography on the Internet, dressing immodestly, and the like.

Here’s a brief sample of some of the Questions and Answers posted on the site:
