The Male Body in Ultra-Orthodox Jewish Theology invites us into a rich cultural world, usually envisioned as the temple of the intellect, and reveals how it actually places the gendered body at center stage.  With the sympathy of a former practitioner and the insight of a theologian, Yakir Englander grapples with the challenges of sexuality to a life of piety.
