Romantic Love as a Religious Value:
The Teachings of R. Yitzchok Eizek Sher of Slobodka
In a twenty-five page pamphlet written in the early 1900s for his students, this key figure in the Mussar movement opens up a discourse of sexual expression grounded in love that is radically different from his peers. While he does not make the translation to LGBTQ+ relationships for us, he offers a portrayal of romantic love that is both deeply religious and profoundly human.
