Jewish Medical Ethics: A 21st Century Discussion
Within the field of ethics, one of the most challenging frontiers is medical ethics. While contemporary medical knowledge preserves life, modern advances have raised moral and ethical issues related to the sanctity and dignity of life - issues whose scope was unimaginable a generation ago. A new ten-lesson Melton course on Jewish Medical Ethics explores Jewish approaches to a number of challenging dilemmas including human cloning, surrogate motherhood, assisted suicide and genetic manipulation.

Day: Thursdays, February 11 - April 22, 2021
(no class 4/1)
Time: 9:30 - 11:00 am via Zoom
Faculty: Rabbi Yehoshua Ben Avraham
