Be Fruitful And Multiply - An Issue Of Sensitivity Within The Orthodox Community

Category :: Education
Speaker: Dr. Baruch Brooks

In 1983 Dr Baruch Brooks moved from London with all his family to Israel where he studied, full-time in a Talmudical Academy (kollel) for two years. He then obtained a post-doctoral position at the Shaare Zedek Medical Center, Jerusalem, with Professor Abraham. He combined this with further studies at the Talmudical Academy.

In 1990, Dr Brooks was invited to take up the post of embryologist and religious supervisor in the newly opened IVF Unit, at Shaare Zedek. He continues in this post up to the present time and is deeply involved with the preimplantation genetics program (PGD), having the responsibility of performing biopsies on the embryos.

In 1995, the Rabbanim in Israel urged him to become involved with fertility problems in the wider community. The outcome of this was the formation of Zir Chemed, which is today an active resource for fertility advice throughout Israel and the Jewish world. Zir Chemed runs a fertility clinic in Jerusalem with a Laboratory, headed by Dr Brooks which works totally according to Halacha.

Dr Brooks now travels extensively to England, USA and Canada, lecturing to Rabbanim and doctors and counseling Jewish couples with fertility problems.
Dr. Brooks will also be here to privately consult with couples experiencing fertility issues.
