This chapter indicates a shift in morality regarding sex among eastern European Jews, and the new role played by radical intellectuals as moral arbiters, as illustrated via a letter to Kalman Marmor, a prolific cultural historian and educator in the Communist movement. This letter inquires after a variety of topics regarding marriage and infidelity, as contextualized within a Communist viewpoint. It briefly touches upon the broader subjects of marriage and sex, before turning to its finer points: infidelity, extramarital sex, and the disclosure of such intimate information to outside parties. Furthermore, the letter notably frames these inquiries in the context of morality.

Keywords:   morality, sex, marriage, infidelity, Kalman Marmor, Communist movement, European Jews
