Marriage & Relationships

[Index | Top of Page | QuickLinksİ | Map]

Kosher Sex: A Recipe for Passion and Intimacy
by Rabbi Shmuley Boteach (a Hasidic Lubavitcher Rabbi)

Kosher Sex is not the Jewish Kama Sutra. There are no hints on how the act itself should be performed. This is a book that insists marriage should come before sex, that pornography erodes the relationship between husband and wife and that passion should be the bedrock of a marriage, but only directed at one's spouse. And many will be surprised to find that the key to keeping marriage fresh are the Jewish laws of family purity. [more information]

Religious Texts

Complete Jewish Bible
by David H. Stern

This Bible translation provides the reader with a Jewish perspective of the Old Testament and New Testament. Significant Hebrew words and names remain in their original pronunciations rather than the English mispronunciation of them. The books of the Old Testament are organized in a way consistent with Jewish Tradition as they would be found in Hebrew Bibles. The New Testament translation removes subtle and blatant anti-Jewish and anti-Semitic phrases and teachings that unfortunately have erroneously appeared in many Bible translations over the past 2000 years. This Bible provides the Christian reader with a healthy and balanced presentation of the entire Bible in it's natural Jewish context, including a substantial introduction to Jewish thought and traditions. The Jewish reader will appreciate that this translation, especially in the New Testament, has been written from a Jewish perspective. The author, David H. Stern, is a Jewish member of the Messianic faith community. Click here for more information.

Gates of Prayer
Edited by Chaim Stern

Anyone looking for an encouraging devotional or reference text will be pleased with Gats of Prayer by Chaim Stern. It is a very nice presentation of prayers, readings, songs, and scriptures all from the Jewish faith but appropriate for anyone. Text is written in Hebrew and English making this a good resource for those learning to read Hebrew. Click here for more information.

Losers and Keepers in Argentina
by Nina Barragan

This collection of stories is a work of fiction that is based on actual historical accounts of Jewish immigrants to Argentina. The book spans the last hundred years and examines the experience of Jewish immigrants, some of whom were nourished by their roots, others who severed their ties to an old way of life. In looking at the choices they all made, the ways they found love or shut themselves off from it, Nina Barragan offers a moving and multidimensional portrait of early twentieth-century Argentina and its contemporary descendants.

NIV Study Bible
Published by Zondervan
