Homosexuality in Judaism.


I have just finished reading a book on the Talmud. Christians (and others) wrongly think religious Jews follow the ‘Old Testament’. In fact, they study the Talmud, a voluminous tome which incorporates the Oral Torah given to Moses and the Rabbinical commentary on it. This comment from a brilliant online library of Jewish texts (Sefaria) neatly summarises the orthodox Jewish understanding on the prohibition of homosexuality in the Oral and Written Torah.
