      Just to be on the Safe Side


      Stunned into silence by the previous blog, the Great Talkback Vendetta War, has thankfully fizzled out. But just to be on the safe side, here’s a little something on the Laws of Marital Relations, from the “Kitzur Shulchan Aruch.”

      The “Kitzur Shulchan Aruch” is a concise compilation of Jewish laws and customs, composed by Rabbi Shlomo Ganzfried.  While it is not meant to replace the definitive multi-volume opus of Jewish law, the “Shulchan Aruch” of Rabbi Yosef Caro, it is a handy guide for the layman who wants to know the basic halachah concerning matters of everyday life and the Jewish holidays. For those of you who would like this quick refresher course, you’ll have to click here for a speedy, flying carpet ride over to jewishsexuality.com. Readers who are interested in learning the laws of marital relations in greater depth are encouraged to look over the “Laws of Marital Relations,” compiled by Rabbi Mordechai Eliahu, also posted on the jewishsexuality.com website.
