Judaism and Medicine: Beyond Bioethics

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

The history of Jews and medicine is as ancient and as rich as the history of the People of Israel itself. But is there a Jewish way to relate to medicine? This session examines the values at the core of medicine, and their impact on doctor and patient.
