Fifty Shades of Talmud with Maggie Anton

Sunday, October 25, 2020 7 Cheshvan 5781

4:00 PM - 6:00 PMZoom

Mishkon welcomes Maggie Anton, author of Rashi’s Daughters and Enchantress, to read from her latest book Fifty Shades of Talmud: What The First Rabbis Had to Say About You-Know-What. Additional information about the book is available here.

Amusing. Seductive. Stimulating. We're talking about the Talmud? That’s right.

Take fifty actual Talmudic discussions, mix in pithy sayings by luminaries from Mae West and Amy Schumer to George Washington and Gandhi,

add a few cartoons, and voila—award-winning historical novelist Maggie Anton reveals how our ancient Jewish sages were more progressive, and more bawdy, than one might think. In this lighthearted, in-depth tour of sexuality within the Talmud, come eavesdrop at the first rabbis’ locker-room door as they discuss every aspect of our most intimate relationships—how, when, where, with whom—often in startlingly explicit fashion.
