MEN'S CLUB FILM & DISCUSSION
Lox, Bagels & "Sacred Sperm"
The Jewish prohibition against spilling seed is codified in the Kitzur Shulchan Aruch (Chapter 151:1), which states, "It is forbidden to discharge semen in vain. This is a graver sin than any other in the Torah." The Kitzur Shulchan Aruch goes on to describe repercussions from this sin and offers men suggestions for avoiding it. An award-winning documentary shown at Jewish film festivals worldwide, “Sacred Sperm” explores this taboo through multiple perspectives of Jewish law, Haredi society in Israel, and the love of a pious father struggling with the challenge of educating his young son. Rabbi David Teutsch will be our discussant.
