Jewish Medical Ethics: A 21st Century Discussion

Time: Mondays, 7:00-8:30 pm

Dates: 10-part series, January 13 – March 16

Teacher: Rabbi Lynn Liberman

Location: Shir Tikvah

Within the field of ethics, one of the most challenging frontiers is medical ethics. While contemporary medical knowledge preserves life, modern advances have raised moral and ethical dilemmas related to the sanctity and dignity of life — issues whose scope was unimaginable a generation ago. This course explores Jewish approaches to a number of 21st century ethical issues, including human cloning, genetic identity, assisted suicide, and genetic manipulation. CEU’s available.

Registration: Register for this course through www.events.org/MeltonTwinCities.

Cost: $250 for the series, plus $45 for the printed reader. There are no financial barriers for participation; for more information, please contact Sara Lynn Newberger.

Co-sponsored by Hineni, Shir Tikvah, and Jewish Family Service, in conjunction with the Florence Melton School of Adult Jewish Learning.
