Together we will explore some of the juiciest ethical dilemmas facing 21st century Jews through the lenses of modern medical ethics, western moral philosophy, and halachah (Jewish law).

We’ll start by asking: what counts as a moral issue? Then, over several classes, we’ll delve into the ethics of self-driving cars; withdrawing, withholding, or requiring life-sustaining therapies; selecting embryos; and more. We’ll conclude our series by considering the role of intention in halachic and moral violations, and the role and function of halachic and moral rules in our lives.
