Important Book on Jewish Medical Ethics Released

What does Jewish Law say about...
Infertility? Cloning? End of Life?

"Medicine and Jewish Law, Volume III," a new release from Yashar Books, edited by Fred Rosner and Robert Schulman, offers a virtual symposium on hot contemporary medical issues and Jewish Law.

From a sensitive insight into the suffering of couples undergoing infertility treatments to the crucial question of "What is death?" this volume confronts some key issues facing today's medical profession and rabbinate.

There is also rare inside glimpse of the "real-world" halakhic process with descriptions of Dr. Abraham S. Abraham's private conversations with Rabbi Shlomo Zalman Auerbach and Rabbi Yosef Shalom Eliashiv about cloning.

Other issues discussed run the gamut from genetic screening to organ transplants and the ethical issues of gifts to physicians from drug companies.

Dr. Fred Rosner, a teaching attending physician at Mount Sinai Services in Elmhurst Hospital Center and Professor of Medicine at Mount Sinai School of Medicine in New York,is a leading expert in Jewish bioethics. He has published 36 books and over 800 articles.

Dr. Robert H. Schulman, an attending physician at Maimonides Medical Center in Brooklyn, NY, is Chairman of the Planning Committee for the International Conference on Modern Medicine and Jewish Law, which is the basis of this book.

Yashar Books is a new publisher of Orthodox Jewish books for contemporary readers and thinkers, dedicated to providing open access to the world of classical and contemporary Jewish ideas.
