Suggested Discussion Questions:
1. What can we infer about the Leker Yosher's attitude toward same-sex relations?
2. Note: The question of the Rabbi Joseph ben Moshe may well have been whether a boy involved with same-sex relations is an ordinary sinner or a wicked person who should not be taught Torah. This might suggest that there was already a sense among rabbis in Ashkenaz that for some people this behavior was constitutional rather than something subject to repentance.
