International Conference on Jewish Medical Ethics

Category :: Education
Join a group of medical practitioners and lay enthusiasts for a bouquet of fascinating lectures panels, shiurim , and text based study with some of the world's leading figures in Jewish Medical Ethics. Topics include genetic screening, stem cell, treating terrorists, end of life issues including living wills, treatment options of terminal illness, and the Israel Dying Patient act , Shabbbat and the Physician, economic issues in the practice of medicine as well as a variety of "other" topics.

The aim of this conference is to analyze those ethical concepts that are dealt with on a day to day basis in light of Jewish sources and Jewish law. Jewish Medical Ethics follows a tradition that spans centuries and its impact reaches far beyond the Jewish world. This alone will provide ample material for discussion with Jewish specialists in the field.

We invite not only rabbis and medical doctors but also dentists, pharmacists, therapists, midwives, nurses, biologists, ethicists and interested laymen to join us at this important conference.
