Putting the Brit in BDSM: An Intimate Look at Ezekiel 16

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

Feminist scholars and readers alike are often appalled by the violence directed toward the wanton wife, Israel, for her misconduct against her beloved, loyal husband, G-d, in Ezekiel 16. In this session we will examine the problematic husband/wife metaphor with an eye for the sadomasochistic trope used by Ezekiel. How do contract and covenant bind G-d to Israel? Is the power play gender-essentialist? Is it a part of the exchange of trust at the core of Jewish theology? Come and see.
