A 21st Century Discussion
No medical knowledge needed.
While contemporary medical knowledge preserves life, modern advances have raised moral and ethical dilemmas related to the sanctity and dignity of life. The scope of this field was simply unimaginable a generation ago. This 10-lesson Melton course, led by Rabbi Schiff, explores what Judaism has to say on challenging issues, including human and animal cloning, surrogate motherhood and multiple parenting, genetic identity and assisted suicide.
