Medicine and Morals: Your Jewish Guide Through Life's Tough Decisions -
|About the Course||
- A man wonders if his dying father should remain on life support.
- A parent wonders if they should tell their child he has a potentially serious genetic disorder.
- A woman wonders if she’s morally obligated to give a kidney to her cousin who has to undergo dialysis daily.
Chances are, like most people, you don’t know what you would do — or even where you would turn for guidance. But with medicine’s increasing role in our lives, most of us will have to face such issues at some point or another.
That’s why you’ll want to know about a remarkable new course called Medicine and Morals: Your Jewish Guide through Life’s Tough Decisions. It’s based on two premises: (1) that Jewish wisdom has much to say about these matters; and (2) that the best time to deal with them is now, while the pressure is off.
Actually, there’s a third premise: that today's complex medical issues are fascinating, profound, and likely to kick up amazingly lively classroom discussion.
No easy questions. No easy answers. Medicine and Morals, is your chance to get real with the subject of medical ethics —discuss actual case histories, and get a sense of direction to weather the toughest challenges you’ll ever face.
