EDWARDS, Colorado — The Rohr Jewish Learning Institute will present “Medicine and Morals: Your Jewish Guide Through Life's Tough Decisions,” a six-session course beginning during the week of Oct. 24.

Rabbi Dovid Mintz of the Chabad Jewish Center will conduct the six course sessions, starting on Wednesday at 7:15 p.m. at the Inn at Riverwalk in Edwards. Medicine and Morals will run at the Riverwalk for six consecutive Wednesdays.

The six lessons will include “Choosing Life: The Obligation to Seek Healing,” “Flesh of My Flesh: Organ Transplants in Jewish Law,” “Rolling the Dice: Risky and Experimental Treatments,” “New Beginnings: The Ethics of Reproductive Technologies,” “With You In Mind: Ethical Treatment of the Mentally Disabled” and “Secret Code: Genetics and the Ethics of Patient Confidentiality.” 

The course will examine contemporary case studies and compare secular and Jewish approaches as a means of developing understanding, he added.

The program is designed to appeal to people at all levels of knowledge, including those without any prior experience or background in Jewish learning.

Interested students may call 970-476-7887 or visit for registration and information. The course will be available for CME and CLE credit. JLI courses are presented in the Vail Valley in conjunction with the Chabad Jewish Center.
