Medical Ethics

Judaism has much to teach us about many subjects. Each subject is relevant in its own way to our lives in modernity. One of those subjects is the study of Medical Ethics.
From ancient times to the present we have an abundance of literature on Medical Ethics. We learn about the value of human life, whose life is more important, what do we do about differing opinions, and when a life is no longer a life. We are also able to extrapolate from these texts a guide to dealing with modern issues that did not exist in ancient times. Even more, we have a responsibility to deal with these questions: how to approach modern issues such  vaccines, in vitro-fertilization, euthanasia, advance directives, abortion and so on. This session will open a window to a world not often examined in synagogues.  Join us.
