Jewish Perspectives on End of Life Care.  October 30, 2012

The Jewish tradition has wrestled with the profound, delicate, and heart-wrenching questions surrounding end-of-life care for many years. We explored some of these questions at a program entitled, "Jewish Perspectives on End-Of-Life Care" at Temple Aliyah on Tuesday, October 30th. Several key texts which I referenced appear on a study sheet that you can access here.  Kenneth Richman, PhD, a medical ethicist who teaches at MCPHS, spoke about advanced care directives (living wills).
